COCO Chanel & Igor Stravinsky follows the life of Coco after Chanel, exploring the electric relationship between the French fashion icon and the radical Russian-born composer.
Having witnessed Stravinsky premiere his revolutionary ‘Rite of Spring’ to an enraged, riotous audience, seven years later Chanel meets Stravinsky again now a penniless refugee living in exile in Paris after the Russian Revolution. When the attraction between them is immediate, Coco offers Stravinsky the use of her new villa so that he will be able to work, and he moves in straight away, with his children and consumptive wife.
And so a passionate, intense love affair between two creative giants begins.
The film is showing at Everyman Winchester from today.
