Oops. We missed it. Or at least I did.
Luckily for all of us, there's still time to see the made-for-TV movie. (See below.)
Based on George Bernard Shaw's play, Pygmalion, the film features Hannah Higgins, played by Stiles, an education consultant who runs for Congress but whose "elitism turns off Boston voters, big-time," according to a description of the film.
Instead, she and a colleague recruit Elliot Doolittle (played by David Walton), a popular beer vender "whose thick South Boston accent masks considerable intelligence," the description says.
It continues, "If she can just teach him to speak like gentleman, dress like a gentleman, comport himself like a gentleman … why he might become a gentleman, a gentleman who can run for Congress—and win."
Presumably, hilarity ensues, not to mention romance.
It will air:
- Feb. 2 at 9 p.m. and 11 p.m.
- Feb. 8 at 8 p.m.
- Feb. 10 at 5 p.m.
