Being Julia, DVD


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.
