A dazzling glam-rock spectacular about a fictitious love affair between David Bowie and Iggy Pop, imagined by a passionate, queer fan. A thrilling journey through folk, glam, and punk, inspired by Ziggy Stardust and Oscar Wilde (who the film suggests was brought to earth by aliens).  

It’s been 10 years since superstar Brian Slade (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) faked his own death and vanished from the spotlight. Now, it’s the job of investigative reporter Arthur Stuart (Christian Bale) to locate this living legend and uncover the truth behind his disappearance. As Stuart digs deeper into Slade’s life and relationship with American rockstar Curt Wild (Ewan McGregor), coincidences and complications turn his investigation into an¬†obsession.

Directed by Todd Haynes.
