The last time Warren Beatty was on the Silver Screen was way back in 2001 with the horrific Town & Country. That too was a big ensemble film. This time he’s managed to get over that horrible film and has made one that could be up for an Oscar.
Make up your own mind with the trailer as well as the amazing poster for the film
It’s Hollywood, 1958. Small town beauty queen and devout Baptist virgin Marla Mabrey, under contract to the infamous Howard Hughes, arrives in Los Angeles. At the airport, she meets her driver Frank Forbes, who is engaged to be married to his 7th grade sweetheart and is a deeply religious Methodist. Their instant attraction not only puts their religious convictions to the test, but also defies Hughes’ #1 rule: no employee is allowed to have any relationship whatsoever with a contract actress. Hughes’ behaviour intersects with Marla and Frank in very separate and unexpected ways, and as they are drawn deeper into his bizarre world, their values are challenged and their lives are changed.
