Based on the novel "Theatre" by W. Somerset Maugham
In the role that brought her amazing critical acclaim as well as the National Board of Review's Best Actress Award, Annette Bening plays a beautiful and beguiling actress who finds herself bored with her role as the toast of the town in Being Julia.
Julia Lambert (Bening) is a true diva: beautiful, talented, wealthy and famous. She has it all - including a devoted husband (OscarÂ® winner Jeremy Irons, 1990 Best Actor, Reversal of Fortune) who has masterminded her brilliant career - but after years of shining in the spotlight she begins to suffer from a severe case of boredom and longs for something new and exciting to put the twinkle back in her eye. Julia finds exactly what she's looking for in a handsome young American fan, but it isn't long before the novelty fling adds a few more sparks than she was hoping for. Fortunately for her, this surprise twist in the plot will thrust her back into the greatest role of her life - Being Julia.
