PREVIEW: The Chaperone

Based on the New York Times bestselling novel by Laura Moriarty, The Chaperone is a film that tells the story of teenage Louise Brooks (Haley Lu Richardson), “the 1920s silver screen sensation who never met a rule she didn’t break,” and who “epitomized the restless, reckless spirit of the Jazz Age.” When the opportunity arises for Louise to study dance in New York City, her mother insists that she be accompanied by a chaperone, and Norma Carlisle (Elizabeth McGovern) volunteers herself for the job.

Presented by Masterpiece Films, The Chaperone was directed by Michael Engler and written by Julian Fellowes, both of the PBS series Downton Abbey.

The Chaperone is currently showing at the Michigan Theater. Visit their website for more information and for showtimes.
