An Awfully Big Adventure

An Awfully Big Adventure

It is 1947 England, and virginal theatre fanatic Stella (Georgina Cates -- “Clay Pigeons,” “A Soldiers Sweetheart”), who still speaks with her dead mother by phone, joins a theatrical troupe headed by manipulative director Meredith Potter (Golden Globe-winner Hugh Grant -- “Two Weeks Notice,” “Music and Lyrics”). Stella quickly falls for Potter, but he does not return her affections, driving her into the arms of the troupe’s arrogant star, P.L. O’Hare (Emmy Award-nominee Alan Rickman -- the “Harry Potter” franchise, “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”). O’Hare eventually takes Stella’s virginity as more secrets of the troupe begin to unravel, although she secretly remains devoted to Potter. Directed by Mike Newell (“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” “Four Weddings and a Funeral”).
