Rules Don't Apply (12A)

Rules Don't Apply (12A)

Comedy, Drama, Romance

The unconventional love story of an aspiring actress, her determined driver, and their boss, an eccentric billionaire named Howard Hughes.

The critical consensus

This is a determinedly oddball film but it’s one made with plenty of energy. At least, Beatty, at this very advanced stage in his career, doesn’t appear to have lost any of his old youthful zest.

Rules Don’t Apply is nothing if not strange, though sadly not in a good way.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 20/04/2017

An experimental, breathless, and messy passion project demanding of repeat viewings.

***(*)(*)Glenn Heath Jr, Little White Lies, 21/04/2017

Beatty’s first film in 15 years – co-written, produced, directed by and starring himself as Howard Hughes – is a plodding, airless exercise in narcissism.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 20/04/2017

Warren Beatty’s first film in 15 years has a wonderful romcom, featuring Lily Collins and Alden Ehrenreich, at its centre.
