Biography, Drama 1h 42m 2019

Aroview: Biopic of photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, with Matt Smith portraying the brilliantly provocative photographer and gay icon.

The film explores the intersection of his art and his sexuality and his struggle for mainstream recognition, from his time at the famed Chelsea hotel, where he met and photographed artists, musicians, socialites, film stars, and members of the S&M underground.

“Matt Smith’s portrayal of the mercurial, brooding genius is nearly as provocative as Robert Mapplethorpe’s famous photograph ‘Calla Lilly’, elevating the film. ” ~CINEMA SIREN
