THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD is a biographical drama film about actor Errol Flynn which is directed and written by Richard Glatzer and Wash West. The film stars Kevin Kline, Dakota Fanning, Susan Sarandon, Matthew Kane and Max Casella. It was screened in the Special Presentation section at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
Errol Flynn (Kline), the swashbuckling Hollywood star and notorious ladies’ man, flouted convention all his life, but never more brazenly than in his last years when, swimming in vodka and unwilling to face his mortality, he undertook a liaison with an aspiring actress, Beverly Aadland (Fanning). The two had a high-flying affair that spanned the globe and was enabled by the girl’s fame-obsessed mother, Florence (Sarandon). It all came crashing to an end in October 1959, when events forced the relationship into the open, sparking an avalanche of publicity castigating Beverly and her mother – which only fed Florence’s need to stay in the spotlight.
