Romantic comedy set in the world of the London stage in the late 1930s. Annette Bening stars as the beautiful and beguiling actress Julia Lambert. She 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. 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.

Marguerite, South Africa. 7 August 2014

This delightful comedy by Hungarian director Istvan Szabo showcases the talents of Golden Globe winner Annette Bening as Julia Lambton, the darling of the 1938 London stage. She is ably supported by a cast of top class actors and actresses who bring the characters of Somerset Maugham's THEATRE, to life. Jeremy Irons gives (as always) a fine performance as Julia's rather naive manager-husband Michael. Juliette Stevenson is Julia's canny dresser Evie, Miriam Margolyes is the wealthy theatre patroness Dolly de Vries, Bruce Greenwood is Julia's homosexual friend and admirer Lord Charles, and casting a satirical eye over all these theatre personalities, is Julia's spirit mentor, Jimmie Langton (Michael Gambon). To enliven this play-within-a-play with a twist in the tail, there are three young people all taking their first tentaive steps into the adult world - Roger Lambton (Tom Sturridge), Julias's son, and Tom Fennell (Shaun Evans), her infatuated admirer, both set their caps at ingenue Avice Crichton (Lucy Punch), but both eventually lose out, but for different reasons.
The 1930s was an age of impeccable elegance, for those with money, and this is conveyed through the beautiful costumes by John Bloomfield, the fine cinematography by Lajos Koltai and the excellent music score by Michael Danna and Liz Gallagher.
