The enigmatic Roy Halston Frowick’s rise to becoming an American icon of ’70s couture gets a compulsively entertaining noir-tinged documentary treatment. A Bergdorf milliner who made his name on Jackie Kennedy’s hat, Halston owed his success to his minimalist designs as much as his brazen self-promotion and business acumen, up until his controversial foray into affordable fashion. With a wealth of archival footage, Halston chronicles the ultimately tragic story amid interviews with collaborators and friends, including Joel Schumacher and Liza Minnelli—plus Tavi Gevinson as the film’s mysterious narrator.

A 1091 release.
