Uncover the secret story of the 3-time Oscar winner and actor, Daniel Day Lewis, who decided to quit the industry after intense roles directed by legends such as Scorsese and Spielberg.

He is also known as one of the most selective international actors. He has announced his intention to retire from acting after the shooting of Phantom Thread in 2017. Daniel Day-Lewis is a visceral and uncompromising actor: in just 20 films, he never stopped pushing the envelope in his performances. He had more than a sterling work ethic; he poured his blood, sweat and tears in his craft. It was a way for him to escape from a family legacy that had become too heavy to bear. This film harks back to the roots of a family mythology, in which the actor is the last hero, in spite of himself.
