Movie Info

The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as America's most important designers. Perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eames Office also created a mind-bending variety of other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys. But their personal lives and influence on significant events in American life - from the development of modernism, to the rise of the computer age - has been less widely understood. Narrated by James Franco, Eames: The Architect and the Painter is the first film dedicated to these creative geniuses and their work. -- (C) First Run Features

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (17)

Made for the American Masters series, it comes across as an excellent piece of TV that seems somehow to have escaped its little box. Fascinating throughout, nonetheless.

A disappointingly thin treatment of two pioneers of design.

This attentive and good-looking doc takes a chronological approach to the work and partnership of Charles Eames and his wife Ray, two of the most influential artist-designers of mid twentieth-century America.
