RULES DON’T APPLY (M)
THE LAW OF THE LA LA LAND, US, 126 MIN
A pleasing, if inconsequential trifle of a romance. In 1958 Los Angeles, famously eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes (Warren Beatty) is still pursuing his favourite hobby: promising a pretty young starlet the world, until the next pretty young starlet comes along. The latest ingenue caught in Hughes’ elliptical orbit is Marla (Lily Collins). Between acting lessons and summit meetings with her mentor, Marla is spirited around town by Frank (Alden Ehrenreich), a young driver on the Hughes payroll.
