‘An Awfully Big Adventure’
Based on the Beryl Bainbridge novel, this 1995 British film has its share of life-in-the-theater shenanigans, and some of them are flavorful. Set in 1947 Liverpool, it’s about stage-struck 16-year-old Stella (Georgina Cates, right), who becomes an assistant stage manager for a theater company run by the imperially effete Meredith Potter (Hugh Grant, left). Peter Firth (center) also appears. (Cinemax Wednesday at 11:30 p.m.).
