Movie Details

Kevin Kline stars as famed Hollywood playboy Errol Flynn in this biographical drama detailing the May-December romance between the dashing yet emotionally-immature actor and rising starlet Beverly Aadland (Dakota Fanning), who was just 15 at the time when they first met on a Warner Bros. sound stage. At first resistant to the fading star's advances, young Aadland is quickly encouraged to pursue the relationship by her fame-hungry mother Florence (Susan Sarandon). In time what started as a purely physical relationship turned into something much deeper, with Flynn affording his young paramour the opportunity to break away from her domineering mother, and Aadland, in return, providing genuine intimacy to the man whose silver screen luster had grown tarnished and faded. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
