(2006) dir Roger Mitchell w/Peter O’Toole, Jodie Whittaker, Leslie Phillips [95 min; 35mm]
Maurice (O’Toole), an elderly actor in failing health, strikes up an unexpected friendship with a teenage girl that gives him one last burst of life. An emotionally complex film that doesn’t shy away from issues of sexuality and objectification, VENUS is a late career highlight for O’Toole and shows that his gift for acting never waned.
