For the first time in the filming of the film, Jodie Whittaker took part in 2006, it was a melodrama with elements of Roger Michelle’s comedy “Venus”. The film tells about the calm and balanced old man Maurice (Peter O’Toole), who is friends with the only surviving friend – the hot-tempered and irritable Ian (Leslie Phillips). In the past, best friends were great Hollywood actors, and now they live out the rest of their lives, from time to time remembering their youth, red carpet, and glory over a cup of coffee.
But their peace collapses overnight when Ian’s niece Jesse appears on the horizon, who came from the north to take care of her uncle. The main character (Jodie Whittaker) is an obstinate girl, a representative of the Pepsi generation, who prefers watching banal TV shows to the plays of Shakespeare and Apuleius’ Metamorphoses. Despite the opposite characters, Morris is imbued with love for Jesse and takes her to the London National Gallery to enjoy Diego Velazquez’s painting “Venus with a Mirror” for the last time.
