“If you leave without emotion, than I’m not doing my job properly.” Mirroring the savage beauty, maverick originality and vivacity of his design, Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui’s documentary 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 mesmerizing genius of profound influence and shows his rags-to-riches story as a modern-day fairy tale laced with the gothic.


Irish release date is June 8.
