Based on the true story of Hollywood's most notorious unsolved mystery, Hollywoodland is a tale of glamour, scandal, and corruption in 1950's Los Angeles. When George Reeves (Ben Affleck), star of TV's Adventures of Superman, is found dead in his home, millions of fans are shocked by the circumstances of his death. The police and the studio bosses want the case closed as a suicide, but rumors linger. Louis Simo (Adrien Brody), a private investigator, picks up the trail and begins to piece together the actor's last, tension-filled days. Who pulled the trigger? Was it the seductive yet scheming fiancee, the spurned lover (Diane Lane), the enraged husband (Bob Hoskins), or was it Reeves himself?

Critics Consensus: More than a movie star murder mystery, Hollywoodland takes it slow in order to reveal the intriguing details of the rise and fall of superstar fame.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this noir-themed film isn't appropriate for kids. It includes violence in the form of several reenactments of a central character's death (as murder or suicide, all possibilities featuring gunshot to his head), as well as repeated images of the crime scene (blood on wall and bed). Another dead body appears on a floor, shot by her husband. A detective is beaten by thugs, resulting in a bruised/bloodied face. Characters appear in bed, though sexual activity is more implied than visible. Major characters smoke incessantly, drink frequently (to the point of drunkenness). Characters use frequent profanity, including multiple "f--k"s and disparaging slang for ethnicity, race, gender, and sexual orientation.
