Is It Any Good?

Actress Sadie Frost takes her first step into feature-length movie-making with this lively and entertaining documentary about iconic British fashion designer Mary Quant. Quant has the standard mix of talking heads and archive footage, which is bolstered by fun fictional reconstructions, plenty of attitude, and touches of visual flair. However, it perhaps lacks the originality and innovation of the subject herself.

What it does well is capture the revolutionary feeling of the '60s, the women's liberation movement, Mod culture, and the British Invasion, all perfectly soundtracked by the likes of The Kinks and The Who. She became the "face" of the infamous miniskirt, and the film goes on to explore the ways the designer continued to tap into the spirit of the time and, with the help of her husband and business partner, expand her brand into every last corner of consumer culture. It's a fun portrait of a revolutionary figure and a fascinating glimpse into the rise of a hugely successful business empire.
