McQueen

Dir. Ian Bonhôte | UK 2018 | 111 min | 15

Mixing archive footage, photographs and audio recordings with scenes recreated specifically for the film, it takes a deep dive into McQueen’s world, both tortured and inspired, in an exploration of his genius for design. 

Mirroring the savage beauty, maverick originality and vivacity of his design, “McQueen” is an intimate revelation of Alexander [Lee] McQueen’s own personal and professional world, both tortured and inspired. It is a film which celebrates a radical and mesmerising genius of profound influence and shows his rags-to-riches story as a modern-day fairy tale laced with the gothic.

As a self-described “unremarkable” working-class boy from East London, he harnessed his demons and went on to become a global one-man fashion brand and one of the most iconic artists of the century. He was a punk rebel, celebrated for overturning the silver-spoon world of Paris haute couture and ushering in the heady, revolutionary era of ‘Cool Britannia’, as well as provoking and subverting the fashion industry in ways that often caused controversy and scandal.

Tickets: £7.75 adult / £6 concession (inc. Poly Fund)
