This Oscar-winning film stars Sir Ian McKellen as James Whale, the director of the classic 1931 film 'Frankenstein'. Whale has slipped into a comfortable but monotonous retirement, living with his housekeeper Hanna (Lynn Redgrave) and lounging in the Los Angeles sun. His solitary existence is disrupted by two events: a visit from a curious film student who wants to find out more about the golden age of Hollywood; and the arrival of Clayton Boone (Brendan Fraser), the new gardener. Whale finds himself attracted to Boone and asks him to pose for a portrait, but the gardener is disturbed by his employer's homosexuality and is initially reluctant to befriend the elderly man.
