Set against the backdrop of the tumultuous early 1920’s, THE CHAPERONE is a period drama that is at once a coming-of-age tale and a classic mystery. A Kansas woman (Elizabeth McGovern, Downton Abbey) is forever changed when she chaperones a beautiful and talented 15-year-old dancer named Louise Brooks (Haley Lu Richardson, Split) to New York for the summer. One of them is eager to fulfill her destiny of dance and movie stardom; the other is on a mission to unearth the secrets of her past. Based on Laura Moriarty’s best-selling novel, THE CHAPERONE reunites the writer (Julian Fellowes), director (Michael Engler) and star of Downton Abbey.
