The Millionairess And Me

The Millionairess And Me

Multi-millionairess Amanda Cronin is a glamorous ex-model living in luxury in Belgravia. She has nearly everything she could ever want – money, age-defying beauty and an international jet-set lifestyle. The only thing she doesn’t have is recognition, a platform and a voice. And that’s where documentary director Martin Read comes in. Although a rough diamond – often skint, has known long periods of homelessness, and has even served time in a Dubai prison – Martin knows how to make a great film. And despite being so different, when the two were first introduced by a mutual acquaintance, they formed an unlikely friendship – and made a deal. Amanda would show Martin the dazzling world of the ultra-wealthy. In return, Amanda would let Martin take her to Wales, into the world he comes from, way out of her comfort zone, to see how the other 99% live. From Monaco to Merthyr, and from Basel to Barry, the pair go on an eye-popping journey into the extremes of wealth and poverty. With the compelling personalities of Amanda and Martin at its heart, this is a fun documentary full of mischief, fireworks, revelation and surprise. It’s also a film exploring the great British class divide like no other.
