Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist Rated 15

Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist

Dir. Lorna Tucker. UK, 2018. 1h 23m. Starring Vivienne Westwood, Ben Westwood, Claire Wilcox, Andreas Kronthaler, Peppe Lorefice, Christopher Di Pietro, Carlo D'Amario.

An intimate documentary about one of the true cultural icons of our time, as she fights to maintain her brand’s integrity, her principles, and her legacy in a business driven by consumerism, profit and global expansion.

'Dame-d by the very Queen she and her fellow punks once desired to "destroy", Vivienne Westwood has gone from national joke, ridiculed for her outré, rude fashion design, to national treasure, but at 76 she hasn't mellowed with age.’ ★★★★ Larushka Ivan-Zadeh, The Times

'Lorna Tucker's thoroughgoing documentary deals with the punk years, the opening of the famous World's End shop and the Sex Pistols but also offers a far broader perspective on its subject.’ ★★★★ Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent
