The film is based on the tragic downfall of swashbuckling star Errol Flynn. Fanning plays Beverly Aadland, the wide-eyed chorus girl who becomes involved in a torrid affair with the far-too-old acting legend, portrayed here by Kevin Kline. While the trailer begins by highlighting the glamour of Hollywood's Golden Age, things quickly turn somber when the forbidden tryst and the ensuing trial threaten to derail Flynn's career. It doesn't help that the young ingenue's desperate stage mom (Susan Sarandon) enables the illicit courtship.
