Velvet Goldmine Film Poster


In 1984, twentysomething journalist Arthur Stuart (Christian Bale) is sent by his paper to investigate the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of glam rock star Brian Slade (Jonathan Rhys Myers) a decade previously. The rise and fall of the singer, Arthur's pop idol as a teenager, is related in flashback as the reporter looks for an angle on the story. Director Todd Haynes examines the allure of glam and the insecurities of those who chose the eyeliner and sequins route to stardom, with Ewan McGregor as Iggy Pop-a-like rocker Curt Wild.
