About this event:
It’s the U.S. premiere of a comedy that explores hatred and admiration through the rivalry between the two giants of beauty and business: Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein (known to many as “Madame”).
Against the vibrant historical backdrop of the zenith of industrialization, the rise of Fascism, The Great Depression, two World Wars and the invention of advertising, both became pioneers in marketing and influenced how women saw and presented themselves. Both rose from humble beginnings, battled society and each other to become two of the wealthiest and most influential women in the world, and fought for gender equality and against racism, sexism and misogyny, even before women could vote.
In Spanish with English surtitles.
