Based on Laura Moriarty’s beloved, best-selling novel, The Chaperone reunites writer (Oscar-winner Julian Fellowes), director (Michael Engler) and star (Elizabeth McGovern) of Downton Abbey for an immersive and richly emotional period piece. Louise Brooks was a 1920s silver screen sensation who never met a rule she didn’t break and who epitomized the restless, reckless spirit of the Jazz Age. But, just a few years earlier, Louise (Haley Lu Richardson) was a 15 year-old student in Wichita, Kansas for whom fame and fortune were only dreams. When the opportunity arises for her to go to New York to study with a leading dance troupe, her mother insists there be a chaperone. Norma Carlisle (Elizabeth McGovern), a local society matron who never broke a rule in her life, impulsively volunteers to accompany Louise to New York for the summer. As their journey begins, both women’s lives are forever changed. A powerful story full of surprises about who we really are, and who we can become.
