Beautiful Fools reimagines the relationship between F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald; a lyrical portrayal of an intense romance that ultimately destroyed them. Their standing as one of Americas most debonair couples is tarnished by alcoholism, debt and Zeldas increasing instability. But they endure, both unaware that Scotts sudden death will soon end their love story once and for all. Following Baz Luhrmanns new film adaptation of The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, R. Clifton Spargo gives us a touching vision of the Fitzgeralds marriage and the man responsible for one of the greatest classics of the 20th century.
