Being Julia
Official Section - Not in competition

In London in 1938, beautiful and beguiling Julia Lambert is at her peak, physically and professionally. But her successful theatrical career and her marriage to handsome impresario Michael Gosselyn have become stale and unfulfilling. She longs for novelty, excitement, sparks. Enter Tom Fennell, a younger man who claims to be Julia?s greatest fan. Finding his ardor irresistible, she decides that romance is the best antidote to a mid-life crisis and embarks on a passionate affair. Life becomes more daring and exciting, until Julia?s young lover callously tries to relegate her to a supporting role. Summoning all of her considerable powers, Julia masterminds a brilliant revenge that places her exactly where she belongs, center stage and in the spotlight.
Having graduated as a director from Hungary?s prestigious Academy of the Art of Theatre and Film, he went on to direct his first feature film in 1964, Álmodozások kora. He has subsequently directed, among other films, Bizalom (Confidence, 1980), Silver Bear at Berlin, Mephisto (1981), Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, Oberst Redl (Colonel Redl, 1985), Special Jury Prize at Cannes, Meeting Venus (1991), which brought the San Sebastian Festival to a close, Édes Emma, drága Böbe (Sweet Emma, Dear Böbe, 1992), Silver Shell at Berlin, Sunshine (1999), winner of three European Film Awards, and Taking Sides (2001).
