WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In 1942 California, a young British academic named Eric Bentley met the exiled German playwright, poet and polemicist Bertolt Brecht. This was the beginning of a fifteen year collaboration and a relationship that was part bromance, part Faustian pact. From the Second World War, via the McCarthy era, to the Cold War, Bentley dealt with the contradictions of an impossible human being who also was one of the greatest artists of the century.
