A portrait of the celebrated and sometimes controversial photographer and costume designer, Cecil Beaton, who won multiple Academy-Awards for his work on Gigi and My Fair Lady. Tracking his fifty year career which spanned multiple worlds from British royalty to fashion to Hollywood, Love, Cecil offers a warm yet frank reflection of his life. Filmmaker Lisa Immordino Vreeland (Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel, Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict) weaves passages from Beaton’s diaries – voiced by Rupert Everett – with archival interviews featuring his famous friends and foes to bring Beaton’s world to life.
