Synopsis

Oscar® Winner Kevin Kline* (The Ice Storm) is “perfection” (Rolling Stone) as the legendary performer Cole Porter in this film that offers “knockout performances” (Gene Shalit) from Natalie Cole, Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, Diana Krall, Alanis Morissette and Robbie Williams, and “melancholy, wit and style to burn” (The Philadelphia Inquirer).

From Paris to Venice to Broadway to Hollywood, the lives of Cole (Kline) and Linda (Ashley Judd) Porter were never less than glamorous and wildly unconventional. And though Cole’s thirst for life strained their marriage, Linda never stopped being his muse, inspiring some of the greatest songs of the twentieth century.

*1988, Supporting Actor, A Fish Called Wanda

Reviews

Jay Boyar Orlando Sentinel | July 16, 2004

Porter's songs keep much the film afloat when, otherwise, it would have sunk. No matter how turgid or murky the movie becomes, when the music starts, you're flying.

Eric Harrison Houston Chronicle | July 16, 2004

Entertaining. With more than 30 Cole Porter songs and an accomplished cast, how can it not be?

Tom Long Detroit News | July 16, 2004

The story is sad. The music is witty, wary, impassioned and delightful. The balance is what makes De-Lovely special.

Andrew Sarris New York Observer | July 09, 2004

If for no other reason (and there are assuredly other reasons), I recommend De-Lovely to my readers for its honorable role in opening another door to our ridiculously repressed past.

Paul Clinton (CNN.com) CNN.com | July 09, 2004

This elegant production beautifully captures a time and place that no longer exists -- and perhaps never did -- except in song.
