THE LOOK OF LOVE is based on the outrageously true story of Paul Raymond (Steve Coogan), who once held the title of the Richest Man in Britain. Raymond’s notorious journey to success began in 1958, when he opened a groundbreaking gentlemen’s nightclub that was so hot no man could resist. A huge hit, it became the cornerstone of Raymond’s Soho empire which included a men’s magazine, nude theatre productions and millions in real estate.
Raymond’s personal life was as scandalous as his shows. His marriage to Jean Bradley (Anna Friel) fell apart when he met Fiona Richmond (Tamsin Egerton), a glamour model who became a pin-up star of his shows and magazines. The love of his life, however, was his daughter Debbie (Imogen Poots), who followed in his footsteps, plunging headfirst into a world of excess.
