The celebration of glam rock, stardom, and dandyism is fiction, just as the media reconstruction is after 10 years of a fallen music star, whose similarity to David Bowie is more than incidental. Starring Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Christian Bale, and Ewan McGregor, the film was awarded for artistic contribution at Cannes, nominated for an Oscar and with its nostalgic, visually rich, and stirring music performances reached cult status among audiences. Velvet Goldmine opens the festival and although dress code in the style of the film is not mandatory, we strongly recommend a glam get up (or at least some glitter eye shadow).
