This week to beamafilm, we bring you the bio doc following investigative journalist Dominick Dunne. During his career, Dunne has covered court room dramas that follow the rich and famous and during the documentary you will be present as he covers the trial of Phil Spector.
Hollywood outcast, best-selling author and chronicler of the rich and famous, Dominick Dunne is one of the world’s leading journalists and society commentators. This is his story.
Vanity Fair Special Correspondent Dominick Dunne has become known the world over for his vociferous championing of the rights of the victim in a high-profile murder cases. His powerful commentaries have made compelling reading in Vanity Fair for a quarter of a century. Now, aged 82, Dunne is covering his last murder trial for Vanity Fair – the trial of music producer Phil Spector – and reflects upon his past as a decorated World War II veteran, his rise and spectacular collapse as a Hollywood producer, and his rebirth as the writer we know today. Dunne’s mind offers a fascinating insight into the American pysche and its obsession with fame.
Featuring Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, Tina Brown, Joan Didion and New York Post gossip columnist Liz Smith as well as legendary Hollywood producer Robert Evans (The Godfather, Chinatown), the film uncovers what lies beneath a life.
