Viking Proudly Presents: The Chaperone

One was reaching for the stars. The other was reaching for her past.

From the writer and director of Downton Abbey comes the first theatrical release from MASTERPIECE FILMS | PBS. Based on Laura Moriarty’s beloved New York Times best-selling novel, The Chaperone reunites the writer (Oscar-winner Julian Fellowes), director (Michael Engler) and star (Elizabeth McGovern) of Downton Abbey for an immersive and richly emotional period piece featuring the story of Louise Brooks, the 1920s silver screen sensation who epitomized the restless spirit of the Jazz Age. In theaters March 29, 2019.
