Helen Mirren's career includes starring roles in the long-running series Prime Suspect, the HBO miniseries Elizabeth I, and such films as The Queen, Gosford Park, The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, & Her Lover, Excalibur, The Mosquito Coast, and The Long Good Friday. Winner of the Academy Award for Best Actress in 2007, Mirren also has received acting awards from The American Society of Film Critics, BAFTA Awards, Emmy Awards, Golden Globe awards and many others.

In Hussy, Mirren gives a smoldering performance as Beaty, who works as a hostess and prostitute in a posh London nightclub in order to support her young son. When Beaty falls for Emory, a mysterious American, she is brought even deeper into the criminal underworld. But Emory may also be her best chance to escape her destiny.

What the Critics are Saying

"John Shea's performance as Helen Mirren's lover…(is) effective in hinting at a murkier past than his guileless looks suggest." - Variety

"Re-creates well the seedy, druggy atmosphere of British nightclubs of the period."
- Radio Times (UK)
