I came to McGuckian's film knowing nothing about Gray and left feeling frustrated that I hadn't learned more about her, apart from the boorish chauvinists in her life.

Sadly, the fact that Brady and Francesco Scianna, the actor portraying her lover Badovici evince absolutely no on-screen chemistry undercuts audience belief in their great passion.

Sometimes borderline risible, but even so, one can't but fail to be impressed it got made at all, given the subject is really mostly of interest to design geeks and those fascinated by intellectual property law.

There is much to be desired from this wan, stagy biopic. The period clothes and architectural and design details can be appreciated, but the aggressively soft-focus cinematography is as unsharpened as the characters.

Catch it now on the big screen for the stunning locations, Gray's own brilliant architecture, interior and furniture designs, and Peter O'Brien's beautiful costumes.
