Matt Smith (DOCTOR WHO) stars as English-born writer Christopher Isherwood, in this BBC dramatization of the novelist's early years spent in hedonistic 1930's Berlin. The city's thriving gay scene proved to be momentous in both Isherwood's personal and professional life; during this time he met Jean Ross, the eventual inspiration for CABARET character Sally Bowles (Imogen Poots, BOUQUET OF BARBED WIRE), and fell madly in love with a young street cleaner named Heinz (Douglas Booth, WORRIED ABOUT THE BOY). The journey of self-discovery was a world away from the repressive values of his mother (Sally Duncan, ROME) in England, and –as chronicled in this lavish drama– the intoxicatingly decadent German subculture was irresistible to the blossoming literary legend. Superbly acted, with dazzling period detail, CHRISTOPHER AND HIS KIND is written by acclaimed playwright Kevin Elyot.
