Set in 1930s Hollywood, The Last Tycoon follows the life of Monroe Stahr (Robert De Niro), a successful movie producer trying to navigate the cutthroat world of the film industry while also coping with personal loss. As he tries to keep his studio afloat and fulfill his vision for a new movie, Stahr finds himself at odds with his boss, Pat Brady (Robert Mitchum), whose sole focus is profits over creativity.

Adding to Stahr's struggles is his complicated relationship with Brady's daughter, Cecilia (Ingrid Boulting), a young woman who reminds him of his deceased wife. Their romance is constantly challenged by outside forces, including a jealous rival producer (Jack Nicholson) who is determined to sabotage Stahr's latest project.
