From acclaimed director Peter Bogdanovich comes an extraordinary look at a fateful excursion aboard William Randolph Hearst's private yacht in November 1924 that brought together some of the country's best known personalities and resulted in a still-unsolved, hushed-up killing. As Hearst and his lover, actress Marion Davies, set sail from San Pedro Harbor early one Saturday morning, hosting a small group that includes the brilliant but self-absorbed Charlie Chaplin, film pioneer Thomas Ince, ambitious gossip columnist Louella Parsons and the eccentric British Victorian novelist Elinor Glyn, it quickly becomes clear that although witty repartee is theorder of the day, deceit and deception are also on the menu.
  • Rated PG13 for sexuality, a scene of violence and brief drug use.
