Here’s the first poster for writer/director Mary McGuckian’s new Eileen Gray biopic The Price of Desire.
The film takes place in France, and tells the controversial story of the house E-1027, and of how Swiss-French architect/designer Le Corbusier effaced and defaced Eileen Gray’s moral right to be recognised as the author of her work and as one of the most forceful and influential inspirations of a century of modern architecture and design.
Orla Brady stars as the famous Irish architect and furniture designer, with support from Vincent Perez, Francesco Scianna
