Julia Lambert (Annette Bening) is a true diva: beautiful, talented, wealthy and famous. She has it all - including a devoted husband (Jeremy Irons) 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. Also starring Michael Gambon, Juliet Stevenson and Miriam Margolyes.
