Synopsis:
Peter O'Toole leads a powerful cast to deliver a charming and poignant portrayal of Maurice, an aging veteran actor who becomes absolutely taken with Jessie (Jodie Whittaker) - the grandniece of his closest friend. When Maurice tries to soften the petulant and provincial young girl with the benefit of his wisdom and London culture, their give-and-take surprises both Maurice and Jessie as they discover what they don't know about themselves. Featuring brilliant performances from a superb supporting cast, 'Venus' is a witty and wise celebration of how the greatest lessons in life can come from the most unlikely places.

Great actors - funny bittersweet story - Venus review by TB

Spoiler Alert
05/05/2009

With all these outstanding actors it can only be good, but don't expect any American style action movie. This is a very British/Film Four intimate play, where even the smallest role has a top actor. 90 minutes wel spent!
