Julie Christie (Doctor Zhivago) stars as Diana Scott in John Schlesinger’s second entry in this year’s Emirates British Film Festival. In one of her most iconic roles, Christie received an Academy Award for Best Actress, with her performance lauded to this very day.
Diana is a beautiful but amoral model who sleeps her way to the top of the London fashion scene at the height of the Swinging Sixties, seeking fame and fortune as she jumps in and out of the beds of the rich and powerful. Though she begins to question whether the price she has paid for fame has involved the loss of her own self-respect and happiness. This is a brilliant work about the result of excess, beauty, fashion and fame.
