Framing John DeLorean

Framing John DeLorean

Mixing documentary and fictionalized re-enactment, FRAMING JOHN DELOREAN takes on the life and career of the mythic, controversial automaker, telling a quintessentially American story of ambition and greed – from his meteoric rise at General Motors Co. to his obsessive quest to build the world’s best sports car, to his shocking fall from grace on charges of cocaine trafficking. Interweaving a treasure trove of archival footage with dramatic vignettes starring Alec Baldwin, FRAMING JOHN DELOREAN is a gripping look at a man who gambled everything in his pursuit of the American Dream. With Morena Baccarin, Josh Charles, Dean Winters, Jason Jones.

“‘Framing John DeLorean’ tells a quintessentially American story of ambition and greed, with plot twists a fiction writer might consider outlandish.” (The NYTimes)

“It’s both inspiring and a cautionary tale, filled with drama, intrigue, hubris, comedy and tragedy. It’s an American story, and a wild one at that.” (Detroit News)

“When we award the official Recommendation Badge of three stars or more to a movie, we’re saying, ‘Please don’t miss this.’ Or, in the case of ‘Framing John DeLorean,’ it’s more like, ‘Oh man, you GOTTA see this.'” (Chicago Sun-Times)

The co-directors, Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce, do a superb job of laying out the real story, in all its ambition and hubris and madness and tragedy, and separating the myths from the facts.” (Variety)
