The year is 1882, the war between the South and the North is over. After the death of his father, Marian Brook moved from the province to New York to two wealthy relatives. Aunt Marian belong to the old American aristocracy and do not want to accept the fact that the world is changing.

So the girl finds herself in a world of luxury and wealth, strict rules of high society and intrigue, between the “old” and “new” worlds.
< p>The Great is a full-length biographical drama about the Russian Empress Catherine. The inimitable Elle Fanning plays the role of young Catherine, who plots the murder of her new husband Peter III in the person of Nicholas Hoult.
Historical accuracy certainly does not underlie this satire. Instead, viewers will find caustic humor, a sea of alcohol, sex and murders, committed, of course, with great indifference.
