My Favourite Year
It’s 1954, and young Benjy Stone is realising his life-long dream of writing for television. Just when he thought it couldn’t get any more interesting, Benjy is assigned as chaperone to swashbuckling veteran Hollywood star, Alan Swann. It’s a dream come true, until he meets the real Swann and realizes that life is much more complicated than it ever looks in the movies.
