Ok: Eddie Izzard, Joanna Lumley, Cary Elwes, Kirsten Dunst, Jennifer Tilly, Edward Herrman. This cast is *chock full* of actors I love, and nobody was phoning it in! Stellar performances all around.
Set in the "roaring 20's," which is one of my favorite historical eras, the story speculates as to what actually happened on a short private pleasure cruise hosted by William Randolph Hearst and Marion Davies, with Hollywood and press VIPs of the day in attendance.
One of the guests died under very suspicious circumstances, and not a word of it was printed in the press, all owned by WRH. The family never sought to press charges, and the obituary obfuscated cause of death. These are the true facts this story was based on. "The Cat's Meow" proposes to fill in the blanks of this event, in an interesting and entertaining way. Highly recommended.
