HVAR:

Sum 25 ára gamal verður Olivier Roust- eing listaligur stjóri hjá tí franska marglætismótamerkinum Balmain. Tíggju ár seinni hevur tað eydnast honum at føra Balmain upp á hægstu tindar, hann hevur sniðgivið kjólar til J.Lo, Rihannu og Beyoncé. Wonderboy lovar hyggjaranum at síggja dagliga lívið hjá Rousteing, og myndatólið verður ein trúnaðarvinur, sum hann opnar seg meir og meir fyri um hvat, ið ørkymlar og drívur hann. Natúrliga fólkatekki hjá Rousteing fjalir ein lívlangan fjarhuga hugin at finna biologisku móðurina. Tørvurin at læra um sín uppruna verður samantvinnaður við tørvin at vera illa gitin: Hann er plágaður av kensluni, at biologiska mamman onkran dagin fer at kenna hann aftur og gera krav upp á hann. Ein sannførandi heimildarfilmur um ein mann, sum umhugsar, hvør hann er og hvaðani hann kemur.

At age 25, Olivier Rousteing was named the Creative Director of the French luxury fashion brand, Balmain. A decade later, he’s led Balmain to new heights of success, designing gowns for JLo, Rihanna and Beyoncé. Wonderboy invites the viewer into Rousteing’s day today, the camera becoming his confidante as he opens up about what worries and drives him. Rousteing’s natural charisma hides a lifelong preoccupation – the desire to track down his birth mother. His need to learn about his ancestral roots is intertwined with his need for notoriety: he’s haunted by the notion that one day his birth mother will recognize him and come to claim him. It’s a compelling documentary about one man’s contemplation of who he is and where he comes from. (LM)
