Synopsis: For his penultimate film, director Billy Wilder created this elegiac, potent and richly entertaining mystery of an aging Hollywood goddess and her impossible pursuit of youth. Reuniting with one of his greatest actors William Holden, and co-written with his longtime collaborator I.A.L. Diamond, this is an exquisitely crafted tale of romance and intrigue. Washed-up producer Barry ‘Dutch’ Detweiler (William Holden) travels to the Greek isles to lure the iconic but reclusive actress Fedora (Marthe Keller) out of retirement in a bid to revive both their careers. But her privacy is hard won, and with good reason, and opening up the secrets surrounding her could spell disaster. The deeper Barry infiltrates Fedora’s remote villa, evading an overprotective countess (HIldegard Knef) and a mysterious plastic surgeon (José Ferrer), the closer he comes to discovering the terrible truth behind the actress’s timeless beauty. In telling this fable of Hollywood's faded glory, Wilder continued the exploration of themes first examined in Sunset Boulevard, now decades later through the prism of New Hollywood, Fedora is a great filmmaker’s testament, and a masterful, stirring exploration of cinema’s power.
