    This film tells the story of two washed-up elderly actors, Maurice is (Peter O'Toole), and his closest friend Ian. Ian's niece sends her 20-something daughter Jessie to help care for Ian. Ian doesn't like the intrusion but Morris, who was once quite a lady's man, is delighted to have a young and attractive woman around. He and Jessie enter into a strange yet symbiotic relationship.

    An excellent film, with a performance by O'Toole that is not to be believed.

    Highly recommended.

    Sorry to revive an old thread, but I just rented Venus. If you haven’t seen this yet, get it. O’Toole was extraordinary, and the rest of the cast was great too.
  6. Yeah, I saw it awhile back. What an actor that O'Toole is.
