'I'm in the family business, that's all. Like dry goods or hardware.' So begins Christopher Plummer's portrayal of John Barrymore, faded Hollywood star and boozed-up tinseltown royal. Set just a few months before his death in 1942, the film adaption of Barrymore (originally a 1997 Broadway play) delivers a fictionalized and compelling look inside a theatrical dynasty. Featuring a stellar performance from Plummer (who took home an Academy Award last year for his role in Beginners), Barrymore takes you into the actor's tantalizing, tragic, and privileged life — all of which begun, lasted, and ended on stage.
