Synopsis

Recapturing the excitement of a long lost New York City, Beautiful Darling tells the story of transgender pioneer Candy Darling, a star in the constellation that was Andy Warhol’s Factory.

Our take

In this comprehensive film honoring actor and luminary trans icon Candy Darling, director James Rasin gives precedence to compelling interviews with an expansive number of Darling’s contemporaries and greatest admirers. To top it off, the film is lovingly narrated by Chloë Sevigny and Patton Oswalt.
