win a stage beauty dvd!
Stage Beauty provides a wonderfully decadent look at 17th Century London in all its vulgar glory. A time when everyone was given licence to party, people grabbed everything with gusto. The theatres reopened, and well-dressed crowds swarmed to witness a golden age of English drama.
Women are forbidden to appear on stage, so actor Ned Kynaston (Billy Crudup), the brightest star in restoration theatre, shines in all the great female roles. Maria (Claire Danes), his loyal dresser, looks on with admiration - and a little envy. But when Charles II (Rupert Everett) decides to ban cross-dressing male actors it sends Ned's career into freefall and gives Maria a chance of fame and make the man she's idolized finally notice her.
Directed by Richard Eyre, produced by Robert De Niro's Tribeca Productions and starring a host of British actors, Stage Beauty is the dramatically different period romance that will leave you yelling 'Encore!'
Stage Beauty is set for DVD release and retail on 27 December 2004 by Momentum Pictures.
