Being Julia

István Szabó (Sunshine) directs this adaptation of W. Somerset Maugham's story of love and revenge on the London stage. Annette Bening devours the scenery as a middle-aged theatrical diva who fools around with a young American lad, gets dumped for a younger woman and concocts an artful revenge plot. Its zippy, near-farcical plot, its biting humor and its sneaky drama make this a must-see for lovers of mature film. Maury Chaykin, Michael Gambon, Bruce Greenwood and Jeremy Irons round out the excellent cast. 105 minutes
