Story

for Sunset Boulevard

In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded, silent-screen goddess, Norma Desmond, lives in a fantasy world. Impoverished screen writer, Joe Gillis, on the run from debt collectors, stumbles into her reclusive world. Persuaded to work on Norma’s ‘masterpiece’, a film script that she believes will put her back in front of the cameras, he is seduced by her and her luxurious life-style. Joe becomes entrapped in a claustrophobic world until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free with dramatic consequences.

Reviews

for Sunset Boulevard

One of those 'must see' performances that come around every decade or so! Glenn Close delivers a bona fide, pull-out-the-stops star performance guaranteed to make you surrender!

Review by Roma Torre from NY1

One of the greatest performances of this century! You have to—and I mean have to—see it in person!

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times
