In this fictionalized account of the true story of Merle Oberon, Mia Sara plays Queenie, the half-Indian woman who rises from obscurity to the heights of acting fame, all the while hiding the non-white part of her heritage. Based on the novel Queenie by Michael Korda (whose uncle, the British film director and producer Alexander Korda, was once married to Oberon).
