"The fascinating inside story of one of Britain’s most controversial and iconic aristocrats of the twentieth century – Lord Edward Montagu of Beaulieu."  From Lord Montagu Website.

At DIFF 2013 I had the wonderful experience of seeing this documentary as well as meeting Luke, Producer Russell Wayne Groves and Co-Writer Bradley Jackson.  The film tells the incredible life of and times of Lord Edward Montagu, both the tough persecution over his sexuality and the amazing business acumen that lead to Britain's first motor car museum.  Overall the amazing access and photography a bunch of Texans had with this unique British family showcased one of the year's most enjoyable documentaries.  You can check out an in-depth interview from DIFF 2013 with Russell and Bradley, here.  Yesterday I got to chat with Luke again about all that's happened since DIFF and more information about how you can see this amazing documentary.

I asked about working with that great narrator, Oliver Tobias.
