Rising from a mind-reading act, Paul Raymond (Steve Coogan) grew to have a fabulously successful career as an erotica magnate that would make him the richest man in Britain. However, for all his material success, Paul’s appetites mess up his personal life, such as alienating his wife with his philandering. Furthermore, even as he challenged his society’s sexual mores, Paul’s relationship with his daughter proves troublingly problematic as she came of age. While trying to be the best father he could, Paul gradually comes to realize that his proclivities have impoverished him in ways that mere money cannot address.
Followed by a Q&A with Paul Willets author of The Look Of Love: The Life and Times of Paul Raymond, Soho’s King Of Clubs
