Rules Don't Apply


Rules Don't Apply
Set in Hollywood, 1958. A small town beauty queen and devout Baptist virgin, under contract to the infamous Howard Hughes, arrives in Los Angeles. At the airport, she meets her driver, who is engaged to be married to his 7th grade sweetheart and is a deeply religious Methodist. Their instant attraction not only puts their religious convictions to the test, but also defies her boss’s #1 rule: no employee is allowed to have any relationship whatsoever with a contract actress. The three interact in very separate and unexpected ways, and as they are drawn deeper into his bizarre world, their values are challenged and their lives are changed.

Jim Judy quote iconThe actor, writer and director has delivered a mess of a movie that might capture the look of the Hollywood studio system, starlets and casting couches of old, but doesn’t breathe any new life into any of that.
