A husband-and-wife design team unlike anything the world had ever seen, Charles and Ray Eames made monumental contributions to various fields of innovation, from modern architecture, furniture, industrial design, to fine art and more. Working from their Venice Beach warehouse, the Eames knew how to take on seemingly anything thrown their way, creating the most effective and artful solution for any project. Narrated by James Franco, Eames: The Architect and the Painter gives these artists their due, surveying a lifetime of achievements as well as their partnership and examines the profound influence on modern American life.
