Samuel Goldwyn Films has released the first The Last of Robin Hood trailer for directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland’s (Quinceañera) real-life drama. The film stars Kevin Kline as silver screen legend Errol Flynn, focusing on his later years when he struck up a relationship with 15-year-old aspiring actress Beverly Aadland (Dakota Fanning), threatening his image in the press. Kline looks to be on point here as Flynn, and the actor’s relationship with Aadland is certainly a curious period in his life. The plot of the film is a bit unclear from this trailer, but the charm of Kevin Kline goes a long way.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Last of Robin Hood:
Errol Flynn, the swashbuckling Hollywood star and notorious ladies man, flouted convention all his life, but never more brazenly than in his last years when, swimming in vodka and unwilling to face his mortality, he undertook a liaison with an aspiring actress, Beverly Aadland. The two had a high-flying affair that spanned the globe and was enabled by the girl’s fame-obsessed mother, Florence. It all came crashing to an end in October 1959, when events forced the relationship into the open, sparking an avalanche of publicity castigating Beverly and her mother – which only fed Florence’s need to stay in the spotlight. THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD is a story about the desire for fame and the price it exacts.
