Mad About the Boy: The Noel Coward Story

Biography Documentary LGBTQIA+


A showcase of the prodigious career of Noël Coward, who sailed to New York aged 20 with £17, to become the world's highest-paid author by age 30.

Mad about the Boy introduces the protagonist to generations possibly unfamiliar with his work. He came from nothing to become the model of a quintessential English gentleman known for his wit, flamboyance, and style. This seamlessly edited documentary runs through the accomplishments of the talented performer, playwright, composer, director, actor, and singer. His story is affectionately told, including his queer identity which was known about even while his lifestyle was against the law at the time. Go out in the midday sun and have a gay old time.
