“Christopher Plummer really deserves a Best Actor Oscar for Barrymore… it’s the role—and the performance—of a lifetime, and he plays every color, nuance, mood shift and variety of vocal power and body language in his enormous range.  The artistry leaves you with your mouth wide open… stunned and cheering.  So bring out the Oscar. “– Rex Reed, New York Observer

An unforgettable portrayal of legendary actor John Barrymore, a man of colossal talent and contradictions and one of the greatest Shakespearean actors of all time. Set in 1942, the final year of John Barrymore’s life, the play takes place on the stage of a Broadway theater, where the actor is struggling to recreate his performance in the title role of Shakespeare’s Richard III. It leads him to look back on the highs and lows of his stunning career and remarkable life. Directed, and adapted for the screen, by Érik Canuel (Bon Cop, Bad Cop), the play stars Christopher Plummer in the tour de force film performance of his career.
