Rules Don’t Apply slogs through the life of billionaire Howard Hughes, an eccentric airplane designer and film studio owner who reportedly bedded young actresses in his employ. Warren Beatty, 79—the biopic’s director, producer, and screenwriter—reportedly brooded over the project for decades. Perhaps the admitted former playboy recognizes something of himself in Hughes? Yes or no, most viewers probably won’t relate to his celebrity excesses, but the trajectories of the wannabe starlets and groveling gophers might land uncomfortably close to home.
