Eames: The Architect and The Painter - trailer now online


Yes, there's a movie of Charles and Ray Eames, going by the name of Eames: The Architect and The Painter.

Made by First Run Features, this is the first movie dedicated to the work of the husband and wife team, arguably the most significant designers in the US in the 20th century. Narrated by James Franco, takes in all their disciplines, from their midcentury design to photography, interiors, multimedia work and exhibitions to name just a few examples.

It opens in the US this week, with a limited run around cinemas before a DVD release, complete with bonus material, in the US on 13th December. The UK? We don't know and the site doesn't say if the DVD is region-free. Perhaps drop the company an email.

You can, however, check out the trailer for free below.
