The incredibly colorful life of late fashion icon Yves Saint Laurent is chronicled in a new film bio Saint Laurent. The biographical drama from acclaimed French director Bertrand Bonello stars handsome model-actor Gaspard Ulliel (Hannibal Rising) as the designer and focuses on the years 1967 to 1976, when Saint Laurent was at his peak and became synonymous world-wide with high fashion, while simultaneously spiraling into drug use and depression. Louis Garrel, known and loved by a lot of gay fans for his unclothed work in 2003’s The Dreamers, costars.
The film, described by Variety as “spellbinding” and showered with 10 César Awards (the French equivalent of the Oscars) nominations earlier this year, will open in select U.S. cities May 18. Watch the trailer below.
