Man Who Bought Mustique, The

A Film by Joseph Bullman & Vikram Jayanti

Regular Price: $24.95

You Save: 70%!


A deliciously entertaining look at Lord Glenconner, a Scottish lord who bought the tiny Caribbean island of Mustique in 1956 for a song and turned it into a playground for the rich and famous, including Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Tommy Hilfiger, and various British royalty such as Princess Margaret and Prince Andrew. But in the late '70s the "Jet-Set Monarch" ran out of money, lost control of his island, and was banished to nearby St. Lucia.

Director Joseph Bullman and producer Vikram Jayanti (When We Were Kings) follow the indomitable Glenconner as he visits Mustique for the first time in ten years. Equal parts high comedy and shock theatre, his return stirs up old animosities and creates new ones. Hilarious, pathetic, sly and charming, Lord Glenconner may be one man's argument for reviving the guillotine and another's swan song for "this blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England."

What the Critics are Saying
