Boogie Woogie is a 2009 comedy film set in the art world of contemporary London. It is based on the book of the same name written by Danny Moynihan, who adapted his own book on the New York art world of the 1990s and titled it based on "Victory Boogie-Woogie", a Piet Mondrian painting.
The film was produced by Eric Eisner and Leonid Rozhetskin, and directed by Duncan Ward. It stars Gillian Anderson, Alan Cumming, Heather Graham, Danny Huston and Christopher Lee.
It premiered on 26 June 2009 at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
Boogie Woogie is a comedy of manners, its cast of characters devouring each other in a small world awash with big money. Set against the backdrop of contemporary London and the international art scene, it casts an eye over the appetites and morality of some of its major players. Dealers, collectors, artists, wannabees vie with each other in a world in which success and downfall rest on a thin edge.
