An original musical portrait of American composer Cole Porter, filled with his unforgettable songs. Porter looks back on his life as if it were one of his spectacular stage shows, with the people and events of his life becoming the actors and actions onstage. Through elaborate production numbers and popular hits, Porter's elegant, excessive past comes to light - including his deeply complicated relationship with his wife, Linda Lee Porter, who was his inspiration.

Right off the boat: Incredible music score, and tall-tale telling of Cole Porter's life. Being ripped between many things at once is hard to bear, especially when love plays as a two-sided factor. For this movie, I give it (And this is the first movie to be graded like this by me) 4.5/5 stars! All in all,it's not Bad- it's De-Lovely!;)

As a big Cole Porter fan, I had high hopes for this movie, and I wasn't disappointed. Worth watching.
