With Venus, Hanif Kureishi – celebrated author of My Beautiful Laundrette – turns his piercing glance onto the pains of old age. Maurice (Peter O’Toole) and Ian (Leslie Phillips) are veteran stage actors whose slow, inevitable decline is disrupted by the arrival in their lives of Ian’s niece Jessie (Jodie Whittaker). While Jodie’s housekeeping skills become a bone of contention between her and Ian, Maurice, on the other hand, finds himself quite attracted to Jodie and seeks a more intimate relationship with her. The dialogue between them is, by turns, humorous, painful and touching as Youth struggles with Age.
