An aspiring young actress and her ambitious young driver struggle hopefully with the absurd eccentricities of the wildly unpredictable billionaire, who they work for in Rules Don't Apply. Lily Collins, Alden Ehrenreich and Warren Beatty star in this awards season hopeful. Today, 20th Century Fox has released the full trailer.
Regency Enterprises and 20th Century Fox present the Romantic Dramedy Rules Don't Apply. It is written, directed and produced by 15 time Academy Award nominee Warren Beatty. In the movie, Marla Mabrey (Lily Collins), under contract to the infamous Howard Hughes (Beatty), arrives in Los Angeles. At the airport, she meets her driver Frank Forbes (Alden Ehrenreich). Their instant attraction defies Hughes' #1 rule: no employee is allowed to have any relationship whatsoever with a contract actress.
Rules Don't Apply is coming to theaters just in time for the holidays, arriving, November 23, 2016. The story was concocted by Warren Beatty alongside Bo Goldman. The ensemble cast also features Alec Baldwin and Annette Bening. Rounding out the all-star line-up is Haley Bennett, Candice Bergen, Matthew Broderick, Dabney Coleman, Steve Coogan, Taissa Farmiga, Ed Harris, Megan Hilty, Oliver Platt and Martin Sheen.
It's Hollywood, 1958. Small town beauty queen and devout Baptist virgin Marla Mabrey (Collins), under contract to the infamous Howard Hughes (Beatty), arrives in Los Angeles. At the airport, she meets her driver Frank Forbes (Ehrenreich), who is engaged to be married to his 7th grade sweetheart and is a deeply religious Methodist.
Their instant attraction not only puts their religious convictions to the test, but also defies Hughes' #1 rule: no employee is allowed to have any relationship whatsoever with a contract actress. Hughes' behavior intersects with Marla and Frank in very separate and unexpected ways, and as they are drawn deeper into his bizarre world, their values are challenged and their lives are changed.
