Back to the Drawing Board

Back to the Drawing Board

An intimate portrait of two of post-war Britain's most prolific designers, Pat Albeck and Peter Rice. The film provides a precious glimpse of lives lived together in a household defined by the rhythms of drawing and design. Pat and Peter, now in their late eighties, reflect on careers spanning six decades, adapting to the realisation of being 'old designers', and the joy they continue to experience in their work. The film documents the disruption of this partnership by Peter's sudden passing away and how Pat finds the means of grieving, remembering and recovering in her creative work. Pat Albeck was one of the leading designers in modern Britain, having worked in the textile, pottery and paper industries and for John Lewis and the National Trust. Peter Rice was one of the pre-eminent stage and costume designers in modern British opera and theatre.

I liked everything about the movie from the beginning till the end. Although there were some plot holes, but considering how awesome the movie was it could be compromised.

The reason I feel that this movie is such a TRIUMPH is the same reason I feel I lead a fulfilling life. I strive to live in the view my journey in life as exactly that: a journey.
