The Animals: Love Letters Between Christopher Isherwood and Don Bachardy

Acclaimed stage and screen actors Simon Callow and Alan Cumming, together with writer and scholar Katherine Bucknell, enliven the emotional correspondence of the two men, who shared their love through letters while daring to be openly gay in conservative mid-century Hollywood. 

David Hockney's 1968 portrait of the pair—which Callow and Cumming recreate—provides the inspiration for this loving tribute to two extraordinary men.
