“A medium dry Vodka Martini, with a slice of lemon peel … Shake it, do not stir it.”
A charming true story – but not one you’ve seen – about Porfirio Rubirosa, international playboy, man of mystery, and the inspiration behind Ian Fleming’s iconic James Bond character.
Eight-year-old Christopher Rivas, a Dominican boy from Queens, is obsessed with James Bond. When he finds out the inspiration behind his hero was also Dominican, his world is rocked to the core.
The Real James Bond … is an enthralling and highly personal story of one young man’s guide to love, success, and re-claiming your identity.
