In this award-winning, darkly funny critique of Hollywood, an aging silent film queen, refusing to accept that her stardom has ended, hires a young, struggling screenwriter to set up her movie comeback. She draws him into her demented fantasy world in a decadent mansion with her devoted butler while Hollywood directors, producers, aspiring young talents, gossip columnists and the paparazzi witness the madness unfold on the famed Sunset Boulevard.
2715 Q Street NW, Washington DC (Georgetown)
