Plot

An exploration of fame and identity, inspired by one of Hollywood's most infamous real-life mysteries. June 16, 1959. The glamour of Tinseltown permanently fades for actor George Reeves, the heroic Man of Steel on TV's Adventures of Superman, as the actor dies in his Hollywood Hills home. Felled by a single gunshot wound, Reeves leaves behind a fiancée - aspiring starlet Leonore Lemmon - and millions of fans who are shocked by his death. But it is his grieving mother, Helen Bessolo, who will not let the questionable circumstances surrounding his demise go unaddressed. Helen seeks justice, or at least answers. The Los Angeles Police Department closes the case, but Helen hires - for $50 a day - private detective Louis Simo. Simo soon ascertains that the torrid affair Reeves had with Toni Mannix, the wife of MGM studio executive Eddie Mannix, might hold the key to the truth. But truth and justice are not so easily found in Hollywood. Simo pursues dangerous and elusive leads in both high and low places and, in trying to turn up the heat, risks getting burned. The detective also uncovers unexpected connections to his own life as the case turns more personal and he learns more about Reeves himself. Behind the icon was a complex man who gave his life to Hollywood in more ways than one.
 

Comments

One of the best films this year. An Oscar for Diane Lane ?, 4 September 2006 Author: asjeeves7 from United States I was blown away by ',Hollywoodland',, and I really wasn',t expecting to be. This is a rare film that is both intelligent and entertaining. It has comedy (not a lot!), powerful scenes, great acting and a compelling story. The main elements are Brody',s slimy detective trying to make a name for himself by uncovering what happened to Superman star George Reeves. At the same time we are treated to beautifully shot flashbacks of Affleck as Reeves and Diane Lane as his older girlfriend, who really pays for his lifestyle. The two story arcs work very well and weave smartly, never confusing the viewer. It is very cleverly done.While Ben Affleck plays the central figure of George Reeves, it is Diane Lane and Adrien Brody who really take the lead roles. Affleck and Brody are superb, but Diane Lane is simply sublime as Toni Mannix, a beautiful but scorned woman who goes into a one-way meltdown. Lane',s heartbreaking performance is flawless and should get Oscar recognition.... So should Hollywoodland. 10/10.
