The Look of Love

"Double-billing comic and tragic tones, the biopic "The Look of Love" follows a father and a daughter over three decades in London's swinging Soho."

— Bill Stamets, Chicago Sun-Times

"Coogan turns in a fine dramatic performance in a role that calls for as much actual acting as wisecracking."

— Michael O'Sullivan, The Washington Post

Steve Coogan and director Michael Winterbottom (24 Hour Party People and The Trip) continue their fruitful partnership with this epic portrait of the rise and fall of British nudie theater impresario Paul Raymond. The symbol of Soho, sex and sophistication from the swinging 60s to the 80s, Raymond almost single-handedly rewrote the cultural history of the UK with an empire of topless theaters and softcore magazines that would eventually make him the richest man in the country. Although often wryly funny, Coogan gives a touching dramatic performance that explores the champagne-soaked highs and the heartbreaking lows of a voyeuristic visionary.
