This film posits the last sad days of gay film director James Whale, who made such horror films as Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein and The Invisible Man. Ian McKellen was nominated for playing Whale, as was Lynn Redgrave in the role as Whales housekeeper. Writer-director Bill Condon won for best adapted screenplay.
