To say that Peggy Guggenheim was ahead of her time is an understatement. She helped to define her time. A woman of extraordinary tastes and appetites, Peggy Guggenheim was  was an heiress to her family fortune who  became a central figure in the modern art movement. She smuggled canvases out of Nazi-occupied Paris. As she moved through the cultural upheaval of the 20th century, she collected not only art, but artists. Her colorful personal history included such figures as Samuel Beckett, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollock, Alexander Calder, Marcel Duchamp as well as countless others. While fighting through personal tragedy, she maintained her vision to build one of the most important collections of modern art, now enshrined in her Venetian palazzo. Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict is a vibrant portrait of a truly amazing woman, at once a capsule history of Modernism and a poignant personal portrait.    USA / 96 minutes
