Helen Mirren's career spans four decades and includes starring roles in the long-running series Prime Suspect, the recent HBO miniseries 'Elizabeth I', and such films as 'Gosford Park'; 'The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, & Her Lover'; 'Excalibur'; 'The Mosquito Coast'; and 'The Long Good Friday'.
Twice an Academy Award nominee, Mirren also has received The American Society of Film Critics Award, BAFTA awards, Emmy awards, Golden Globe awards and many others.
In HUSSY Mirren gives a smoldering performance as Beaty, a hostess and prostitute in a posh London nightclub working to support her young son. Beaty falls for Emory, a mysterious American (John Shea) who works at the club and who has a "murkier past than his guileless looks suggest" (VARIETY). Although Beaty finds herself brought deep into the criminal underworld, she realizes Emory may be her best chance to escape her destiny.
Shot in London in 1980, HUSSY features cabaret and dance club scenes that "re-create well the seedy, druggy atmosphere of British nightclubs of the period" (RADIO TIMES UK).
