Fashion and family clash in Mrs. G a film about Gottex swimsuit mogul Mrs. Lea Gottlieb. She was the founder, owner and legendary designer of the Gottex swimwear empire. Gottlieb was a woman full of contradictions, but knew how to recover from periods of crisis – from surviving the Holocaust, establishing a small factory in Israel, to her phenomenal success abroad. The film follows Mrs. G’s incredible creativity alongside her dominant personality, the complex relationships with her two daughters, who both worked for the family business. Director Dalit Kimor says “Her model for life was the model for her daughters and they paid the price. She was truly famous, a huge success, but she and her family paid the price.”
