In London in 1938, Julia Lambert is at her peak, physically and professionally, but her successful theatrical career and her marriage to handsome impresario Michael Gosselyn (Jeremy Irons
) have become stale and unfulfilling. She longs for novelty, excitement, sparks. Enter Tom Fennell (Shaun Evans
), a younger man who claims to be Julia's greatest fan. Finding his ardor irresistible, she decides that romance is the best antidote to a mid-life crisis and embarks on a passionate affair. Life becomes more daring and exciting, until Julia's young lover callously tries to relegate her to a supporting role. But on opening night, Julia reveals that she is a more formidable actress than anyone ever imagined.
she is a great actress! Beaufitul, charm and awsome! Her role is cool! and she presented it very very well!!!! OH I love her ;)
Annette Bening pulled a stunning performance through and through... never a dull moment, Beautifully done.
I loved it, Annette Bening was superb, and I can`t imagine anyone doing the role better, so I can understand giving her a role as a Brit, but why cast Canadian Bruce Greenwood as a Brit, (requiring an accent) and Shaun Evans (from England) as an American (requiring an accent). It would`ve made more sense to cast a Canadian or American as an American, since it was filmed in Canada. Why import someone who has to fake an accent? I had a feeling while watching it that he wasn`t really American, and so when I looked it up, wasn`t surprised to find out I was right.
