The Look of Love

Last fall, we got our first look at Michael Winterbottom's film The Look of Love, which focuses on porn baron Paul Raymond, the man behind soft-porn magazines like Men Only, Escort and more. Steve Coogan plays Raymond as he struggles with maintaining a real relationship with his wife (Anna Friel) outside of his adulterous business and a daughter (Imogen Poots) who seems doomed to lose her life to glitz, glamor and drugs. The first trailer has arrived, and much like the film, it's flashy, but lacks any real substance. Winterbottom constructs a story that focuses too much on the erotic and amusing, making the more emotional aspects less significant. But there are tons of nude women in the film if that's your bag. Watch it!

First trailer for Michael Winterbottom's The Look of Love from The Guardian (via The Film Stage):

Michael Winterbottom (The Trip, The Killer Inside Me) directs The Look of Love from a script by Matt Greenhalgh (Nowhere Boy). The film follows Steve Coogan as Paul Raymond, a 20th century legend who became known as the "King Of Soho" after crafting a career show business with a nude review, moving into publishing with a series of racy magazines and eventually major property owner in Soho, and a true force to be reckoned with back in the day. Anna Friel, Imogen Poots, Stephen Fry and David Walliams also star in the film which played Sundance in January, hits the UK on April 26th, and in US theaters later this year.
