The incredible, dramatic life of art icon Peggy Guggenheim is revealed in this fascinating portrait by director Lisa Immordino Vreeland (Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel). Never a beauty nor as wealthy as her name implied, Guggenheim decided to make her mark by collecting modern art. Moving through the cultural upheaval of the 20th century, she collected not only art, but artists. Her colorful personal history included trysts, affairs and marriages with Samuel Beckett, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Marcel Duchamp, as well as countless others. While fighting through personal tragedy, she maintained her vision to build one of the most important collections of modern art in the world, today enshrined in her famous Venetian palazzo. The film is a feast of the greatest art of the 20th century, mixed with the wild and iconoclastic life of one of the most influential women in the history of the art world.
