After his acclaimed performance as Lord Bullingdon in Stanley Kubrick’s BARRY LYNDON, young actor Leon Vitali surrendered his thriving career to become Kubrick’s loyal right-hand man. For more than two decades, Leon played a crucial role behind-the-scenes helping Kubrick make and maintain his legendary body of work. Their complex, interdependent relationship was founded on devotion, sacrifice and the grueling, joyful reality of the creative process. This new documentary enters their unique world and shows how the mundane gives rise to the magnificent as timeless cinema is brought to life at its most practical and profound level.
