A new poster and trailer for The Most Beautiful Boy In The World have been released ahead of the July release date.

Festival hit documentary The Most Beautiful Boy In The World is coming to UK cinemas at the end of July, courtesy of Dogwoof who have just launched a new poster and trailer for the film.

The documentary comes from Kristina Lindström & Kristian Petri who spent five years working on the film with the subject Luchino Visconti, who was at first incredibly cautious to open up to the pair, looking back at experiences from over 50 years ago.

A bit more context to the film, as well as that beautiful new poster and trailer –

In 1970, filmmaker Luchino Visconti travelled throughout Europe looking for the perfect boy to personify absolute beauty in his adaptation for the screen of Thomas Mann’s Death in Venice. In Stockholm, he discovered Björn Andrésen, a shy 15-year-old teenager whom he brought to international fame overnight and led to spend a short but intense part of his turbulent youth between the Lido in Venice, London, the Cannes Film Festival and the so distant Japan. Fifty years after the premiere of Death In Venice, Björn takes us on a remarkable journey made of personal memories, cinema history, stardust and tragedy.

The Most Beautiful Boy In The World is released in UK / Irish cinemas 30th July
