Details

Set in the bawdy, decadent world of 1960s Soho, this dazzling and audacious film charts the powerful and dangerous relationship between one of Britain's most revered twentieth-century artists, Francis Bacon (Derek Jacobi), and his lover and muse, George Dyer (Daniel Craig), to explore the territory where love, sex and art collide.

Winner of a host of international film awards, including Best British Performance for both Derek Jacobi and Daniel Craig at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, the film's exquisite visual style - at once beautiful and grotesque - perfectly captures the extraordinary energy of Bacon's art.
