Outstanding and daring, Bernard Rose's exploration of Hollywood's seamier side tells the story of a man who has everything, yet finds that this can never be enough. Ivan Beckman has the Midas touch. He's secured the deal of his career, and life in Hollywood's fast lane has just got one hell of a lot faster. But when fate delivers a cruel and unexpected blow, Ivan is sent spiralling out of control. Soon, he starts living his life of hedonistic pleasure - parties, women and drugs - to the extreme. And while others are more than willing to join in the fun, only Ivan knows the occasion. A modern day interpretation of Tolstoy's classic short story, The Death of Ivan llyich, this brilliant expose of Hollywood's cut-throat world of deal making and breaking features a truly inspired performance from Danny Huston.
