British drama based on the chain of events that led to the infamous 'Profumo affair', the cold war sex scandal that toppled Britain's Conservative government in the early 1960s. John Hurt stars as high-class osteopath Stephen Ward, who grooms his teen showgirl protege Christine Keeler (Joanne Whalley) and her friend Mandy Rice-Davies (Bridget Fonda) to party with his swinging high-society friends. Storm clouds gather when Christine becomes simultaneously entangled with Russian diplomat and Soviet spy Eugene Ivanov (Jeroen Krabbe) and the British Minister of Defence, John Profumo (Ian McKellen).
