Storyline

Contemporary filmmaker Hannah Rothschild tries to uncover the real story behind her great aunt's sudden disappearance. In 1951 the beautiful married mother of five left home and went to New York in search of the man who wrote 'Round Midnight. She found him and this is the extraordinary account of what happened next. A journey that took her from Harlem to Hell and back again. She went to prison for him and gave up everything familiar. But why? Helen Mirren reads Pannonica's words and Sonny Rollins, Quincy Jones, TS Monk junior, Roy Haynes, Curtis Fuller, The Duchess of Devonshire and other luminaries tell their side of the story. This film is the result of a ten year search to solve the puzzle of Pannonica. Written by Hannah Rothschild

Quotes

Herself - Narrator: At Rothschild houses like Waddesdon no one bother to pick cherries. It was seen as far more elegant to have the gardeners carry the actual trees around the table so we could choose which fruit we wanted. At breakfast guests were offered a choice of long horn, short horn or jersey milk with their tea.

Nice behind the scenes look.
29 May 2010 | by (Austin) – See all my reviews

I've seen the Johnson & Johnson heir's film as a behind the scenes look at how the other side lives. Spoiled kids with no conscious of what's going on around them. I love this documentary because it delves into civil rights on all sides and how even tho you may be a part of one of the most important families it doesn't matter where, who or what you love, love can concur all. You get to see a look at how money doesn't buy you happiness, but how it can help people follow their loves. The Rothschild family is somewhat unknown to the American people, but the touch that Micca(sp) put towards using her money and fame towards helping people who are denied racially, people who have drug or alcohol problems, and she looked past that and put her wealth towards the good of a better cause. This film, unlike J&J doesn't make one feel left out, or born into the wrong class, but it shows how one can better themselves and others by taking what they have been given and use it for the better good.
