DIRECTOR: JERRY SCHATZBERG

CAST: FAYE DUNAWAY, BARRY PRIMUS, VIVECA LINDFORS, ROY SCHEIDER

An established fashion photographer before turning filmmaker, in his debut feature Schatzberg explored his ambivalent feelings towards the fashion world, reflecting on his relationship with model Anne Sainte-Marie. Faye Dunaway plays a former top model who has come to pieces, holed up in a Long Island beach house after her breakdown—though her fashion sense is undiminished, making this the rare film about fashion to be attentive to style.
