Description

Cary Grant lounges in Hollywood, weary of cinema's constant glamour. Soon, Her Majesty's Secret Service will break his malaise with a bizarre diplomatic mission. In Naples, Lucky Luciano fixes horse races and begins to lay the foundation for the global heroin trade. In Bologna, a bartender named Pierre searches for true love and his missing communist father.It is 1954 - the height of the Cold War - and these three are on a thrilling path toward an intersection that will involve the nascent KGB, Joseph McCarthy, Frances Farmer, Parisian lowlifes, Marshal Tito, David Niven, James Bond, and a very special television set called the McGuffin Electric.A political thriller, a comic spy caper, a romance, and a piece of social satire, 54 is an adventure into the past and a commentary on our present.
