A Man's Story

As already announced, finally heading for USA theaters is A Man's Story, the highly-anticipated Ozwald Boateng documentary, which is set to be released in the USA on November 2nd - tomorrow.

The film will open on in New York City, at the IFC Center; and in Los Angeles, at the Laemmle NoHo 7.

That's it for opening weekend! I wouldn't look for an expansion in following weeks, since it's going to be released on DVD 4 days after it opens, next week Tuesday, November 6. Although, it still might depend on how well it does opening weekend.

The feature doc centers on charismatic London-born (of Ghanaian decent) Savile Row designer, Ozwald Boateng, who has outfitted men like Will SmithJamie FoxxSpike LeeBrad Pitt,Chris RockDaniel Day LewisDon CheadleForest WhitakerRussell CroweWesley Snipes, and countless others.

The film, 10 years in the making (by director Varon Bonicos who started filming Boateng in 1998 – he opened his first Savile Row shop in 1994, at age 34), is both a professional and personal profile of Boateng, focusing on his business, his design process, and his private life.

And on-top of suiting up the elite, Boateng has done quite a bit of wardrobe design for films you have all seen, like The MatrixTomorrow Never DiesOceans 13, and a few others.

I've seen the 100-minute film, and should have a review posted in the next 24 to 48 hours.

Here's the release trailer:
