Description
(BAFTA Nominee for Best Supporting Actor/Christian McKay) High school thespian Richard Samuels (Zac Efron) lucks into a small role in the 21-year-old "boy wonder's" (Christian McKay—a spot-on Orson Welles) landmark production of Julius Caesar—which is set in Fascist Italy—at the Mercury Theatre in 1937. Claire Danes plays an enterprising stage assistant who becomes drawn into the personal lives of both Samuels and Welles. But this 2009 backstage comedy/drama rightfully belongs to McKay, whose BAFTA-nominated performance brilliantly captures the genius, arrogance, and preening showmanship of a man who never bothered to merely speak when he could instead declaim. The disc includes a making-of documentary, deleted scenes, and two featurettes.

"Christian McKay is the best screen Welles stand-in to date, easily raising the bar set by Angus Macfadyen, Liev Schreiber, Vincent d'Onofrio and Danny Huston. McKay uncannily resembles the young Welles and catches the familiar mannerisms.... A really satisfying backstage drama, this is an exhilarating tour around a man whose talent was almost as big as his ego."—Empire
