Maurice, an aging veteran actor, becomes absolutely taken with Jessie, the grandniece of his closest friend. When he tries to soften the petulant, provincial girl with the benefit of his wisdom and London culture, they surprise each other as they discover what they don’t know about themselves.

MUBI's take

For those fans of the great actor Peter O’Toole who were saddened by his announcement of retirement, look no further! His charming and poignant portrayal of Maurice is a late career-defining role, and garnered the star of Lawrence of Arabia his eighth Academy Award nomination.
