Product Description:

When English novelist Christopher Isherwood (BERLIN STORIES) began romancing Don Bachardy, a portrait painter 30 years younger than him, it raised many eyebrows. But their relationship soon became one of the literary world's great love affairs. This documentary looks fondly back at their long life together, with Don recounting his memories about his partner, years after his death.

Description by Zeitgeist Films Ltd.:

CHRIS & DON: A LOVE STORY is the true-life story of the passionate three-decade relationship between British writer Christopher Isherwood (whose Berlin Stories was the basis for the beloved Cabaret) and American portrait painter Don Bachardy, thirty years his junior. From Isherwood's Kit-Kat-Club years in Weimar-era Germany to the couple's first meeting on the sun-kissed beaches of 1950s Malibu, their against-all-odds saga is brought to dazzling life through beautiful, rare home movies and reminiscences from Don and many of their friends, including Leslie Caron and Liza Minnelli. With Isherwood's exemplary status as an out-and-proud gay hero, and Bachardy's eventual artistic triumph away from the considerable shadow of his life partner, CHRIS & DON: A LOVE STORY is above all a joyful celebration of a most extraordinary couple.
