: : : De-Lovely

Story

"De-lovely" is an original musical portrait of American composer Cole Porter filled with his unforgettable songs. In the film, Porter is looking back on his life as if it was one of his spectacular stage shows, with the people and events of his life becoming the actors and action onstage. Through legendary hits like "Night and Day," "It's De-lovely," and "In the Still of the Night," Porter's elegant, excessive past comes to light – including his deeply complicated relationship with his wife and muse, Linda Lee Porter. Directed by Academy Award®-winner Irwin Winkler from a script by Jay Cocks and starring Oscar®-winner Kevin Kline, Ashley Judd, and Jonathan Pryce in addition to some of today's biggest rock and pop music stars, "De-lovely" is a celebration of Porter's music as well as an exploration of the artist's journey and the undying power of love.
