Venus (2006)

The story of Maurice and Ian, a pair of veteran actors (Peter O'Toole and Leslie Phillips), who never quite hit the big time. Now in their golden years, they continue to work, though the jobs are far from glamorous. The arrival of Ian's grandniece, Jessie (Jodie Whittaker), forces Maurice to realize how little he actually knows about himself now that his life is drawing to a close. Also stars Richard Griffiths and Vanessa Redgrave.
