About the Movie
Ian McKellen delivers a riveting, award-winning performance as Hollywood horror director James Whale. It's 1957, and Whale's heyday as the director of "Frankenstein," "Bride of Frankenstein" and "The Invisible Man" is long behind him. Retired and a semi-recluse, he lives his days accompanied only images from his past. When his dour housekeeper, Hannah (Lynn Redgrave), hires a handsome young gardener, Clayton Boone (Brendan Fraser), the flamboyant director and simple yard man develop an unlikely friendship. This powerful and poignant relationship will change their lives forever.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: An engrossing, unusual, imaginatively executed bit of psychological gamesmanship ...
Fresh: McKellen, nevertheless, provides plenty of electricity -- even if the monster never quite gets off the table and walks.
Fresh: An example of a reasonably challenging film that doesn't really accomplish what it sets out to do, but is nevertheless thoughtfully-conceived and contains a couple of highly enjoyable performances that keep it afloat.
Fresh: While Condon may not quite have captured an accurate Whale, he and his cast have brought a memorable creation to life.
