Mad About the Boy: The Noel Coward Story

Dir. Barnaby Thompson
90 min

Noël Coward–songwriter, playwright, singer, actor, spy–possessing tremendous talent… and contradictions. A gay icon terrified of being outed, who knew he wanted to be a star at age two, he charmed the world and hid his secrets well.

Coward, who grew up in poverty and was driven to wealth to give comfort to his mother, was a self-educated, self-made man whose public persona hid the most fascinating private life. Mad About the Boy is an affectionate look at one of the 20th Century’s most fascinating artists.

“[A] mesmerizing journey into matchless wit and style…” –Geordie Greig, The Independent
