Velvet Goldmine

Synopsis

Quote: Hailed as “a ravishing rock dream” (Entertainment Weekly), the Oscar®-nominated film (Best Costume Design, 1998) delves into the glam-rock world of the 1970s with an all-star cast including Ewan McGregor (Moulin Rouge!), Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Showtime’s “The Tudors”), Toni Collette (Showtime’s “United States of Tara”), Eddie Izzard (Valkyrie) and Oscar®-winner Christian Bale (Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role, The Fighter, 2010).  Velvet Goldmine is written and directed by Academy Award® writer-director Todd Haynes (Best Writing, Original Screenplay, Far from Heaven, 2002).

It’s been ten years since Brian Slade (Meyers) faked his own death and escaped the spotlight of the glam-rock scene.  Now, investigative journalist Arthur Stuart (Bale) is on assignment to uncover the truth of the rocker’s strange disappearance.  Stuart gets an unabashed look at the flamboyance and excess behind the larger-than-life stars of the 1970s music scene and what’s become of them since the turn of the new decade.
