It’s always exciting to see the latest work from a beloved director, or to watch a great actor return to a classic role. But one of the most underrated pleasures of going to the movies is discovery; watching an actor you’d never heard of before surprise you with their incredible range or charisma, or realizing, in real time, that you’re witnessing the work of a major new artist. It really doesn’t get much better than that.

A Howard Hughes biopic by Warren Beatty sounds pretty interesting. Any portrayal of the eccentric recluse and his ventures into Hollywood are enough to pique my interest. But Rules Don’t Apply is hardly a biopic on the billionaire; instead Beatty’s first directorial effort since 1998’s Bulworth is an uninteresting love story about an aspiring actress and a young driver. Toss in some uneven comedy, a creepy sex scene, some premature ejaculation, and a song Lily Collins never stops singing and you’ve got yourself one very strange movie about Howard Hughes.
