Screenplay by Harold Pinter

Rewarding adaption of F. Scott Fitzgerald's unfinished tragedy about Hollywood and its movie moguls of the late 1920s and 1930s. The character of Monroe Stahr is clearly based on the legendary movie producer Irving Thalberg. Robert De Niro is remarkably effective, capturing Stahr's power and influence in a subtly shaded performance. Faithful, skillful screenplay by Harold Pinter.
