You can witness the birth of Men Only and check out Paul Raymond’s luxurious bachelor pad in these two new clips from The Look of Love.
There are only a couple more days to go until Michael Winterbottom’s biopic of Raymond arrives in cinemas, but you can get to know Chris Addison’s afro-sporting would-be editor Tony Power and Tamsin Egerton’s Fiona Richmond ahead of time in these new snippets of the film.
In this one, we see Raymond (Steve Coogan) and Power lunching together in a posh London restaurant and discussing how best to launch the soft porn mag Men Only:
And here, we see Raymond’s Alan Partridge-esque seduction of Richmond as he whisks her back to his swanky bachelor pad:
Talking about The Look of Love, Coogan has promised that audiences can expect laughs and sauce aplenty from the biopic: “It’s a very British story about an eccentric character at the centre of pivotal events in British culture.
“I love the film. It has that strange combination of comedy and tragedy that Michael Winterbottom manages to pull off with a real deftness of touch. Like very few films these days it’s actually about something without being portentous. Oh and there’s lots of naked ladies in it too!”
The Look of Love will be released theatrically on Friday 26 April. Read our review of the film here.
