The Look of Love - free cinema adventure

The Look of Love

We have managed to secure free tickets for the previews of The Look of Love.

Admin fee of £3 to cover costs and expenses of running the group applies.

Michael Winterbottom’s “THE LOOK OF LOVE” stars Steve Coogan (24 Hour Party People, The Trip) in the true-life story of Paul Raymond, the man behind Soho’s notorious Raymond Revue Bar and Men Only magazine. Paul Raymond began his professional life with an end of the pier mind-reading act. He soon realized that the audience were more interested in watching his beautiful assistant, and that they liked it even more if she was topless. He quickly became one of Britain’s leading nude revue producers.

In 1958 he opened his Revue Bar in Soho, the heart of London’s West End. As it was a private club, the nudes were allowed to move. A huge success, it became the cornerstone of a Soho empire, prompting the Sunday Times in 1992 to crown him the Richest Man in Britain. The film focuses on Raymond’s relationships with the three most important women in his life: his wife Jean (Anna Friel), his lover Fiona (Tamsin Egerton) and his daughter Debbie (Imogen Poots). It is a modern day King Midas story, with Raymond acquiring fabulous wealth, but at the cost of losing the people who are closest to him.

    Advance tix and a fun british film - what more could you want? Decent biopic, though as with other biopics, struggles to deliver a strong story within the real life story. It's well acted and oodles of cameos...
