Discretion. It’s woven into the fabric, culture and history of the Dorchester Collection. It’s where handshakes have changed the course of history. Where affairs of state mix with affairs of the heart. And where the visible go to be invisible.
What exactly happens behind closed doors isn’t for us to say in these films – and it’s precisely this discretion that makes the Dorchester Collection so much more than just a chain of upmarket hotels. It makes them a collection of stories.
After all, as any good storyteller knows, what people imagine happens will always be more powerful than truth. Because of this, I see these films as having a mythical feel, spun with magic to give a dream-like quality.
