Saint Laurent is a spectacular celebration of the famous and flamboyant designer’s artistry, drive and inspiration. This fascinating biopic focuses on Yves Saint Laurent at the zenith of his celebrity and explores his relationships, neuroses, addictions and insecurities. Gaspard Ulliel delivers a charismatic and compelling performance as the tortured iconoclast, ably supported by Aymeline Valade and Léa Seydoux as his muses, Louis Garrel as a preening model and Jérémie Renier as Pierre Bergé . Saint Laurent’s fall from grace and his subsequent rise to fame are well known, but this fascinating film adds new layers to his story of redemption — and be prepared for a continuous display of covetable garments that serve as a reminder of the true genius behind the aloof façade of Saint Laurent.
