The story, which takes place smack in the middle of UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfHollywood, documents Hughes's production of the films ''Film/HellsAngels'' and ''The Outlaw'', his efforts to establish and grow Trans World Airlines and to develop reconnoissance and troop-transport aircraft for the Army Air Forces during World War II, his relationships with Hepburn and Gardner, and his ever-worsening obsessive-compulsive disorder. It won five out of eleven AcademyAward nominations, including Best Supporting Actress (Blanchett).
