The Price Of Desire is the controversial story of how the bisexual Irish artistÌ_s Eileen GrayÌ_s influential contribution to 20th century architecture and design was almost wiped from history by the egotistical ÌÇFather of ModernismÌ_, Le Corbusier. The film unfolds how her relationship with philanderer Jean Badovici, editor of influential LÌ_Architecture Vivante, and the man who made Le Corbusier famous, further fuelled the rift between the two architects, and consigned her legacy to a century of neglect and long-overdue recognition.
