When an aspiring actress and a wannabe business man are hired by Howard Hughes, their lives change in unpredictable and incredible ways in this Golden Globe nominated film.
Hollywood is a crazy micro-universe, with its own set of rules. Throw Howard Hughes into the mix, and this world becomes even wackier.
Marla Mabrey’s (Lily Collins) dreams have come true. Only a few weeks after leaving Virginia behind for California, the girl-next-door turns into a big-screen hopeful after being hired by the legendary, eccentric, unconventional Howard Hughes (Warren Beatty).
It’s a similar story for Frank Forbes (Alden Ehrenreich) a young man vying for his place on Hollywood’s business scene, he’s hired to be one of Hughes’ personal chauffeurs.Small-town boy meets small town girl, and the rest is history… Or not.Famous for doing things his way, Hughes has a golden rule for his employees no dating amongst each other.
But as Marla and Frank try to find their place beneath the bright lights of show business, they find themselves drawn to each other. The two connect on a level that resonates far deeper than the superficial society they’ve found themselves in and it might just be their undoing.
Written, directed by and starring Warren Beatty, who won the Academy Award for Best Director in 1981 for Reds, this quirky comedy features all the charm of an Old Hollywood classic with the emotional complexity of a modern-day drama.
