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 (11)

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.

Filmmakers Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey deliver a nostalgic zing reminiscent of the TV drama Mad Men but tread lightly around Charles's mood swings and extramarital affairs.

May 11, 2012 | Full Review…

A basically adulatory and very lively look at the documentary's subjects.

December 6, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

As fascinating - and at times oblique - as the famous couple themselves.

December 1, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Much like the creations of its subjects, "Eames" is itself a dazzling, sensory adventure.

November 25, 2011 | Rating: 4/4

There couldn't be a better time to examine the complex and absorbing history of this designing couple, and "Eames: The Architect and the Painter" couldn't be a better vehicle for that examination.
