Set in the 1660's at a time when in live theatre women's roles were played by men, Edward 'Ned' Kynaston (Crudup) is England's most celebrated leading lady, using his beauty and skill to make the great female roles his own.
But when Charles II is tired of seeing the same old performers, the ruler allows real women to tread the boards and men may no longer play women's parts.
Ned becomes a virtual nobody, virtually overnight and seems headed for suicide till his ex-dresser turned actress Maria (Danes) takes it upon herself to make a man of him again.
Released: 30th September 2004.
