HOLLYWOOD, CA — (12-19-18) — Mapplethorpe (2019) is the upcoming release starring Matt Smith as gay photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, who discovered himself both sexually and artistically in New York City throughout the ’70s and ’80s. I can’t wait to see how well this Gay theme film does at the box office and on VOD and DVD in 2019.
The Mapplethorpe film is directed by Ondi Timoner who brings a screenplay co-written with Mikko Alanne to the big screen.
Co-starring with Matt Smith are Marianne Rendón, Tony winner John Benjamin Hickey, Mark Moses, Carolyn McCormick, Tony winner Brian Stokes Mitchell, Tony nominee Kerry Butler, and John Bolton.
The film depicts Robert Mapplethorpe’s life from moments before he and Patti Smith moved into the famed Chelsea hotel. He begins photographing its inhabitants and his newfound circle of friends, including artists and musicians, socialites, film stars, and members of the S&M underground.
Mapplethorpe’s work displayed eroticism in a way that had never been examined nor displayed before to the public.
“Robert Mapplethorpe is arguably one of the most important artists of the 20th century. Mapplethorpe discovered himself both sexually and artistically in New York City throughout the 70’s and 80’s. The film explores Mapplethorpe’s life from moments before he and Patti Smith moved into the famed Chelsea hotel, home to a world of bohemian chic. Here he begins photographing its inhabitants and his new found circle of friends including artists and musicians, socialites, film stars, and members of the S&M underground Mapplethorpe’s work displayed eroticism in a way that had never been examined nor displayed before to the public. The film explores the intersection of his art and his sexuality along with his struggle for mainstream recognition. MAPPLETHORPE offers a nuanced portrait of an artist at the height of his craft and of the self-destructive impulses that threaten to undermine it all.”
Samuel Goldwyn Films has scheduled Mapplethorpe to hit theaters on March 1, 2019.
