Set in London in the early ’70’s during the emergence of the glam-rock scene- this film follows the rise of Brian Slade, a mythical rock icon who finds himself at the very epicenter of the pleasures and decadence of his day. At the peak of his fame, Brian and his wife Mandy cruise the nightspots of New York and mix with the likes of Ewan McGregor’s Curt Wild, his spiritual twin and fellow glam rocker — until Brian disappears after a publicity stunt gone wrong. Years later, British journalist Arthur Stuart delves into the mystery to uncover what happened.

Critics' Praise

“Brilliantly reimagines the glam-rock 70’s as a brave new world of electrifying theatricality and sexual possibility, to the point where identifying precise figures in this neo-psychedelic landscape is almost beside the point.” — Elvis Mitchell, The New York Times
