Christian Bale, Ewan McGregor, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Toni Collette star in this 1998 Palme d’Or and Oscar-nominated homage to the world of 1970s glam rock.

The year is 1984 and British journalist Arthur Stuart (Bale) is investigating the on-stage assassination of glam rock personality, Brian Slade (Meyers). Through a series of interviews with ex-wife (Collette), former manager (Eddie Izzard) and mentor (McGregor), Stuart delves into the twisted psyche of glam rock’s brightest star.
