Program Description


Society matron Norma Carlisle volunteers to accompany future Jazz Age star and free spirit Louise Brooks for a summer in New York City. But why does she want to go? It's a story full of surprises--about who these women really are and who they eventually become. Written by Julian Fellowes of Downton Abbey fame and starring Elizabeth McGovern, a Downton Abbey star, the film is based on Laura Moriarty's beloved novel.
