About The Look Of Love
A film about the life of Paul Raymond, a man who rose to prominence as The King Of Soho on a wave of sleaze and smart business decisions. From humble beginnings performing a mind-reading act on Clacton pier in the 1940s, Raymond circumvented strict licencing laws to open the U.K's first strip club and became a property and publishing magnate. With a string of theatres and magazine titles like Men Only and Escort he regularly appeared on the country's rich lists and continued to rule over London well into his sixties. Steve Coogan plays Paul in his fourth pairing with versatile director Michael Winterbottom and presents him as a sociable but controlling figure surrounded by strong women, including his wife (Anna Friel) and beloved daughter Debbie (Imogen Poots).
