Filmfest 2004

Beneath the moon and the sun, today’s hottest stars pay tribute to Cole Porter, the man, the artist, the lover, and the legend. In the film, Porter looks back on his life as if it was one of his spectacular stage shows, with the people and events of his life becoming the actors and action onstage. Through elaborate production numbers and legendary hits like "Anything Goes", "It's De-Lovely" and "Night and Day", Porter's elegant, excessive past comes to light - including his deeply complicated relationship with his wife and muse, Linda. It’s a sparkling celebration of Porter's music as well as a stirring exploration of the artist's journey and the undying power of love.
