Synopsis

The story of George Dyer, a petty criminal who became the model and lover of leading Dublin-born artist Francis Bacon. Hopelessly at odds with Bacon's cynical, sophisticated milieu and bewildered by the painter's cruelty toward him, Dyer sought refuge in drugs and alcohol. British fact-based drama, starring Derek Jacobi, Daniel Craig, Tilda Swinton and Adrian Scarborough.
