Chris and Don: A Love Story

The true-life story of the passionate three-decade relationship between British writer Christopher Isherwood (whose "Berlin Stories" was the basis for the much-beloved musical "Cabaret") and American portrait painter Don Bachardy, thirty years his junior. From Isherwood's Kit-Kat-Club years in Weimar-era Germany (the inspiration for his most famous work) to the couple's first meeting on the sun-kissed beaches of 1950s Malibu, their against-all-odds saga is brought to dazzling life through beautiful, rare home movies and reminiscences from Don and many of their friends, including Leslie Caron and Liza Minnelli.
