In 1987, a middle-aged Irish butler fresh out of rehab arrived on the doorstep of tobacco heiress Doris Duke. Bernard Lafferty faced an uphill battle convincing his notoriously demanding boss to keep him on staff. A mere six years later, he was inheriting her fortune. Oscar(R)-winner Susan Sarandon ('Dead Man Walking') and Oscar(R)-nominee Ralph Fiennes ('The English Patient') deliver riveting performances in this intimate HBO Films drama that tells the hypothetical story of these two disparate characters who went on to form the unlikeliest of friendships. Directed by Bob Balaban; written by Hugh Costello.
