SynopsisBurt Reynolds leads the cast playing the insecure difficult and demanding Jefferson Steel. As an aging Hollywood action hero accustomed to the perks of the job, he’s desperate to reinvigorate his waning career and is therefore convinced by his agent to accept a prestigious invitation to star in the British theatre playing King Lear at Stratford…. only the Stratford in question is Stratford St John, a sleepy Suffolk village. And the theatre is an old barn, which the villagers want to save from closure by putting on a star-led charity performance.
