Gods and Monsters Movie

Hollywood history comes to life in this tale of the last days of Frankenstein director James Whale, played by Ian McKellen (Richard III, Apt Pupil). Long forgotten by the studios, Whale has retired to pursue painting and a life of leisure. Gods and Monsters explores his final fascination with a handsome gardener, Clayton Boone, played by Brendan Fraser (Twilight of the Golds, George of the Jungle).

"An unalloyed success! A performance by Ian McKellen that richly deserves to be remembered at the end of the year. Immensely touching…"- Janet Maslin, The New York Times
