It's 1957, and Hollywood horror director James Whale's heyday as the director of "Frankenstein," "Bride of Frankenstein" and "The Invisible Man" is long behind him. Retired and a semi-recluse, he lives his days accompanied only by images from his past. When his dour housekeeper Hannah hires handsome young gardener Clayton Boone, the flamboyant director and the simple yardman develop an unlikely friendship.

I was initially interested in this 'biopic' of James Whale, but I found it sadly disappointing. I admire Ian McKellen, and I just saw him in "Mr. Holmes", which was excellent. I found this swishy, effeminate role extremely unappealing, however. A gay Gandalf cooing over and fondling Brendan Fraser just doesn't do it for me, sorry. No offense to those of that persuasion. I did find the disgusted housekeeper 'Helga' or 'Hanna' played by Lynn Redgrave funny, though.

One of the strangest random stories to be so sublime that I've ever seen.
