The Last Days of James Whale

James Whale, the director of the classic film 'Frankenstein' has slipped into a comfortable but monotonous retirement, living with his housekeeper Hanna and lounging in the Los Angeles sun. His solitary existence is disrupted by two events: a visit from a curious film student who wants to find out more about the golden age of Hollywood; and the arrival of Clayton Boone, a new gardener. Whale finds himself attracted to Boone and asks him to pose for a portrait, but the gardener is disturbed by his employer's homosexuality and is initially reluctant to befriend the elderly man.
