This romantic dark comedy stars film legend Peter O'Toole (who earned an Oscar nod for his performance) as veteran actor Maurice, a man whose quiet golden years turn topsy-turvy when he falls for a young and brash nude model (Jodie Whittaker). Director Roger Michell's poignant May-December romance is an uplifting tale of love, lust and the endless pursuit of vitality and youth by a man whose life is drawing to a close.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

It's not a new story in Hollywood, the old lech pursuing the young maiden, both of them revealing hidden dimensions as the story turns. What makes this movie so good is Peter O'Toole's charm and exuberance. This is man you'd like to spend two hours with.
