Léa Seydoux and Louis Garrel in "Saint Laurent" are A-M-A-ZING

There's the Pierre Bergé endorsed biopic Yves Saint Laurent, out last month, and then there's Saint Laurent, a more dramatic account of his life-based on the 2006 book, A Beautiful Fall - out in September. Although you'll still see scenes of Yves sketching and working in the studio, you'll soon realize that this unofficial version is more about Paris' nightlife in the '70s, long drug-filled vacations to Morocco, and steamy nights with Jacques de Bascher, who was also Karl Lagerfeld's longtime companion and is played here by Louis Garrel. Based on the brief trailer here, all we can say is, ooh la la.
