Oscar winning set and costume designer, photographer, writer, painter and dandy Cecil Beaton was not only a dazzling chronicler, but an arbiter of his time. From the Bright Young Things to the front lines of war and the pages of Vogue and then onto the QueenÕs official photographer, Beaton embodied the cultural and political changes of the 20th century. Narrated by Rupert Everett and featuring stellar interviews with David Bailey, Manolo Blahnik and David Hockney, director Lisa Immordino Vreeland (Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel, Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict) blends archival footage and photographs with voice over of BeatonÕs famed diaries to capture his legacy as a complex and unique creative force.
