A Good Woman
Itís the early 30ís just after the Wall Street Crash, but life for high society continues much as before. Among the stuffy, snobbish crowd who still manage to holiday on the Amalfi coast in Italy we find the newly-weds Robert (Mark Umbers) and Meg Windermere (Scarlett Johansson), blissfully married and already bored. Megís innocence and beauty attracts the attention of Lord Darlington (Stephen Campbell Moore), a notorious playboy. Into their midst comes a breath of fresh air provided by the arrival of the scandalous Mrs Erlynne (Helen Hunt), whose reputation has preceded her. Having drained the wallets of all the available men in New York City, Mrs Erlynne has decided to try to find a man in this European vacation spot. Rumours soon start to spread that she has got her claws into Robert, though she has many admirers, including the wealthy Lord Augustus (Tom Wilkinson) who proposes marriage to her. Lord Darlington discovers that Robert has been paying Mrs Erlyne an allowance and uses this information to try to persuade Meg to run away with him. Can the web of lies be untangled in time to save Megís marriage? Based on "Lady Windermereís Fan" by Oscar Wilde, this film directed by Mike Barker ("Best Laid Plans") is enjoyable enough as period dramas go, but not nearly as delightful as the recent Pride & Prejudice.
