About the Movie
In the role that brought her amazing critical acclaim, an Academy Award® nomination, the Golden Globe® Award and the National Board of Review Award for Best Actress, Annette Bening plays a beautiful and beguiling actress who finds herself bored with her role as the toast of the town in Being Julia. Julia Lambert (Bening) is a true diva: beautiful, talented, wealthy and famous. She has it all--including a devoted husband (Oscar® winner Jeremy Irons, 1990 Best Actor, Reversal of Fortune) who has masterminded her brilliant career--but after years of shining in the spotlight she begins to suffer from a severe case of boredom and longs for something new and exciting to put the twinkle back in her eye. Julia finds exactly what she's looking for in a handsome young American fan, but it isn't long before the novelty fling adds a few more sparks than she was hoping for. Fortunately for her, this surprise twist in the plot will thrust her back into the greatest role of her life--Being Julia.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Bening slips into this role naturally and wholly.
Fresh: Bening shines, and the film shines too.
Fresh: There are several notable actors in it, most of them quite good, but it's the glorious Annette Bening who hoists this flawed production on her mink-wrapped shoulders and makes it work.
Rotten: I liked the movie in its own way, while it was cheerfully chugging along, but the ending let me down.
