Steve Coogan plays Paul Raymond, the controversial entrepreneur who became Britain’s richest man, in this steamy biopic from prolific dir. Michael Winterbottom.
Raymond’s notorious journey to success began in 1958, when he opened a groundbreaking gentlemen’s nightclub. A huge hit, it became the cornerstone of Raymond’s Soho empire which included a men’s magazine, nude theatre productions and millions in real estate. But his personal life was as scandalous as his shows.
“A solid, straightforward biopic about a fascinating individual and his destructive relationships, with strong performances and a healthy sense of naffness.” ~ Empire.
