“u0026#39;RULES DONu0026#39;T APPLYu0026#39;: Four Stars (Out of Five)u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe new comedy-drama-romance from writer/director/star Warren Beatty; Beatty hasnu0026#39;t directed (or written) a film since 1998u0026#39;s u0026#39;BULWORTHu0026#39;, and he hasnu0026#39;t starred in a movie since 2001u0026#39;s u0026#39;TOWN u0026amp; COUNTRYu0026#39;. In this film he plays the very eccentric, and extremely mentally ill, billionaire Howard Hughes. The movie tells the story of an aspiring young actress, and her driver (who both work for Hughes), that begin a forbidden love affair (forbidden by Hughes). Beatty directed the film and co-wrote it, with Bo Goldman (who also co-wrote such epic dramas asu0026#39;ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOOu0026#39;S NESTu0026#39; and u0026#39;SCENT OF A WOMANu0026#39;). The movie also costars Alden Ehrenreich (the new Han Solo), Lily Collins, Matthew Broderick, Annette Bening, Haley Bennett, Candice Bergen, Alec Baldwin, Oliver Platt and Martin Sheen. Itu0026#39;s received mixed reviews from critics, and it bombed at the Box Office. I liked it though. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMarla Mabrey (Collins) was an aspiring actress, that moved to Hollywood (in 1958) to work for Howard Hughes (Beatty). Mabrey was a devout baptist, from Virginia, that had never done so much as have a drink of alcohol, or engage in premarital sex. She was accompanied by her strict mother, Lucy (Bening). Right away Mabrey and her driver, Frank Forbes (Ehrenreich), are immediately attracted to each other. Frank has a fiancé though, and an affair between the two is strictly prohibited (by their employer, Hughes). Hughesu0026#39; bizarre quirks, and severe mental struggles, also cause challenges for their relationship. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe movie is pretty interesting, and quite entertaining, at first; then it loses itu0026#39;s way a little, but it does come to a pretty satisfying conclusion. The performances are all good, especially Beatty in the lead; Ehrenreich and Bennett (two very promising up- and-coming actors, that I really like right now) are also good, but severely underused. Beattyu0026#39;s direction is adequate enough, but the script definitely could have used a few more rewrites. I still found the film to be mostly amusing, and somewhat interesting. Howard Hughes was a very fascinating person though, that deserves a much better movie (u0026#39;THE AVIATORu0026#39; was much better).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWatch our movie review show u0026#39;MOVIE TALKu0026#39; at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M9osPwjfbM”
