The Look Of Love (Official Trailer).

Steve Coogan Steps into Porn King Paul Raymond’s shoes, check out the trailer right here!

From the team behind “24 Hour Party People”, “Cock and Bull Story”, not forgetting “The Trip” (Steve Coogan and director Michael Winterbottom) comes “The Look of Love”, the unbelievably true life story of Paul Raymond once Britain’s richest man.

The screenplay by Matt Greenhalgh (Control) The Look of Love sports an impressive cast including Anna Friel, Imogen Poots and Tamsin Egerton as the women in Raymond’s life, alongside a great roster of British comic talent including Chris Addison, David Walliams, Simon Bird and Matt Lucas.

Beginning his career in show business as a mind reader and cabaret act Paul raymond then went on to build an empire of gentleman’s clubs, porn magazines, and nude theatres causing both uproar and titillation amongst British society.

The Look of Love drags us on a break neck speed tour of Raymond’s always colourful life, from his marriage to Jean a nude dancer and choreographer, his divorce on meeting fiona- a glamour model and subsequent pin- up star of his magazines and shows, to his relationship with his beloved daughter Debbie and her tragic death at the age of 36.

Fans of previous efforts including 24 Hour Part People rest assured, as this particular films influence seems to be stamped firmly on The Look of Love. The same ruff and ready improvisational dialogue is present partnered along side the same alternative/art house style. Judge for yourself but this seems to be another stunner from Mr Coogan, have a look at the trailer below.
