November, 1924: William Randolph Hearst (Herrmann) and his actress lover Marion Davies (Dunst) set sail aboard his private yacht, hosting a small group that includes Charlie Chaplin (Izzard), film pioneer Thomas Ince (Elwes), gossip columnist Louella Parsons (Tilly) and novelist Elinor Glyn (Lumley). Although witty repartée and double entendre are the order of the day, deceit and deception are also on the menu - resulting in a murder.
