The origin story of the young Han Solo (Ehrenreich), as he gets out of Corellia, meets Chewbacca (Suotamo) and Lando (Glover) for the first time, and runs into former lover Qi’ra (Clarke). Ehrenreich has just the right easy charm and despite some missteps it’s an enjoyable yarn with fine set-pieces.

Naive beauty contest winner Marla (Collins) arrives in Hollywood in 1958 with her rightly suspicious mother (Bening) and a personal driver, Frank (Ehrenreich), but both are employed by Howard Hughes (Beatty). Odd, fitfully disquieting tragicomedy, entertaining but uncertain in tone.
