He's also foul-mouthed, irascible, and highly resistant to the concept of allowing a full time care giver into his home. Out of sheer necessity but hardly convicted at the notion herself, Sir Michael's daughter Sophia (Emilia Fox) reluctantly brings in a candidate to interview for the job. Into this fraught household comes Dorottya, who is greeted coldly by Sophia and Michael's estate manager and former lover Milly (Anna Chancellor) but nevertheless manages to convince them to allow her a chance. Dorottya, an aspiring Hungarian actress herself in need of a day job, secretly hopes that this opportunity to care for Sir Michael will propel her own career onstage and endures his unbearable temperament. Their relationship gradually improves as Dorottya's warming personality and knowledge of theatre begins to grow on the old lion. As Michael mellows however, Dorottya's underlying ambitions become more transparent and estate staff become suspicious of her true purpose in applying for the job. When Sir Michael is offered a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Great Britain Critcs' Guild, the increasingly contentious relationship between Dorottya, Sophia and Milly begins to climax as Dorottya encourages Michael to accept the award in person. Sophia however fears a final appearance by her father could prove catastrophic and forever taint his image should his illness be responsible for an accident onstage.
