Rules Don't Apply


Marla (Lily Collins) is invited to Hollywood by Howard Hughes (Warren Beatty) to audition for a new movie and before long she becomes involved with Frank (Aiden Ehrenreich), one of Hughes' company drivers.

'Rules Don't Apply' is as much about the eccentricities of the legendary filmmaker/billionaire as it is about the young couple's relationship. Collins charms on screen and Ehrenreich makes for an interesting partner.

Beatty does a great job as Hughes but how humorous you find this movie humorous may depend in part on how much you stomach the character's eccentric behaviour.
