1964, Los Angeles.

Interior: Hitchcock’s cottage on the Universal lot. A great director and his star are engaged in a complex struggle between beauty and beholder. It’s mid-shoot on Marnie, but Hedren is struggling. The glare of Hollywood’s spotlight, coupled with a compulsion to be ever-ready for her close-up even when cameras have stopped rolling, are pushing her to the brink. How do you say no to the man who believes he made you…


1967, Suffolk.

Interior: Reeves’s rented cottage on location of Witchfinder General. A young film director is desperately trying to create his magnum opus. The only obstacle in his path: the ageing star the studio has foisted upon him to help the box office. Price is about to walk, and Reeves’s career hangs by a thread: veteran and visionary go head to head on whether true art has any place on a film set.
