Was Diane Arbus a brilliant innovator whose photographs captured the beauty in the most desperate of subjects? Or did her voyeuristic approach demean her subjects? Following his breakthrough feature, Secretary, director Steven Shainberg creates a ravishing imaginary portrait of a visionary artist whose work would have such a major impact on the art world. A fascinating romantic drama, Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus, arrives on rental DVD on 9th July 2007 courtesy of Entertainment In Video. It will be released to buy on 23rd July 2007.

Oscar®-winner Nicole Kidman (Birth, The Hours, Cold Mountain) stars as photographer Diane Arbus, whose life is forever changed when she meets her mysterious and captivating new neighbour, played by Oscar®-nominee Robert Downey Jr. (Good Night, and Good Luck; Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Chaplin). The film's talented supporting cast includes Ty Burrell (Friends With Money, In Good Company) and Jane Alexander (The Ring, The Cider House Rules).

The film opens in 1958 with Arbus (Nicole Kidman) living as a depressed and repressed housewife in an immaculate Park Avenue apartment. It is here that she works alongside her husband Allen (Ty Burrell), helping him shoot ads for women's magazines.

One day Diane locks eyes with a masked figure on the street. Mysteriously drawn to this man who, it later transpires, is her neighbour, and determined to take his photograph, Diane plucks up the courage to go to his apartment. There she meets Lionel (Robert Downey, Jr.) who tells Diane that he has just retired as the main attraction from a freak show. For Lionel suffers from hypertrichosis, a disease that causes thick hair to grow over every inch of his body, including his face.

He and Arbus strike up a flirtatious friendship, and he introduces her to the underworld of New York. They party with dwarves, dominatrixes and circus performers - all destined to become future subjects of Arbus's photographs. Arbus's marriage soon begins to fall apart as her relationship with Lionel builds towards a traumatic, but transformative, end.
