Todd Haynes' story of the life, death and resurrection of glam-rock idol Brian Slade is a swooningly sexy tribute to the rude boys in mascara and heels who detonated the musical and sexual explosion of seventies.
The characters throw themselves into the makeup, clothes, drugs, blazing music and bi-sex with a dynamism that is never less than mesmerising.
Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, capturing the essence of Bowie glitter, plays Brian Slade, and Ewan McGregor stars as the swaggerering Curt Wild. Features a stellar supporting cast including Christian Bale, Toni Colette and Eddie Izzard.
Winner of the Award for Best Artistic Contribution (Todd Haynes) at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival; nominated for the Golden Palm.
