Story


The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as America's most important designers. Perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eames Office also created a mind-bending variety of other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys. But their personal lives and influence on significant events in American life - from the development of modernism, to the rise of the computer age - has been less widely understood. Narrated by James Franco, Eames: The Architect and the Painter is the first film dedicated to these creative geniuses and their work.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a stunning Eames lounge chair, and that's as it should be..”
by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times]
“..appropriately busy and abundant: full of objects, information, stories and people, organized with hectic elegance..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
“..deceptively cool and sometimes giddily fun but fairly rudimentary at its core..”
by Drew Taylor [indieWARE]
