In the 1960s and '70s, Paul Raymond (Steve Coogan) built an empire of London strip clubs, adult magazines, and erotic revues, eventually becoming the United Kingdom's richest man -- a journey that's chronicled in The Look Of Love. Along the way, he was determined to live life on his own terms, even if his behavior threatened to break up his family. Frequently unfaithful to his wife and spoiling his daughter terribly, he nonetheless is taken aback by his wife's bitter anger and baffled that his child isn't happy when she has everything she could ever want. (Or so he thinks.) Though kids need more than money and toys, Raymond has a hard time realizing that the people in his life want his devotion more than anything else. That's the one thing he's unwilling to provide -- with tragic results -- in this biopic from director Michael Winterbottom.
