The dashing designer of modern dress—and disgrace
As seen on BBC America
James Purefoy (Rome, Vanity Fair) delivers a captivating performance as the dandy of Regency England who changed male fashion forever. In an age when men bedeck themselves in powders, perfumes, and all manner of finery, Brummell boldly advocates simplicity, elegance, and—good heavens!—washing. His friendship with the Prince Regent (Hugh Bonneville, Iris) rockets Brummell to social prominence, but his fascination with the magnetic bad-boy poet Lord Byron (Matthew Rhys, Brothers & Sisters) eventually proves his undoing.
Directed by Philippa Lowthorpe (The Other Boleyn Girl) and based on Ian Kelly’s critically acclaimed biography, Beau Brummell tells its story with a wit, flair, and irresistible stylishness that befit England’s ultimate man of fashion.
