Easy Virtue

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

The other day I watched Easy Virtue, starring Jessica Biel, Colin Firth, Kirstin Scott Thomas, and Ben Barnes. This actually was released in 2008. It was about a wealthy young Englishman marrying a beautiful American, and he brings her home to meet his family. His mother instantly disapproves. The American battles to deal with her difficult new in-laws. This film was definitely a romantic comedy, and I loved the time period it was set in.

Here is the description of the movie from Netflix:
"American divorcee Larita (Jessica Biel) meets a wealthy young Englishman, John Whittaker (Ben Barnes), in France and impulsively marries him -- but she's not ready to take on her disapproving new in-laws (Colin Firth and Kristin Scott Thomas). When John returns to his parents' country estate with his new bride, the dysfunctional Whittaker family attempts to destroy the spirited American girl. This romantic comedy is based on Noel Coward's play."

If not for the storyline, you must see this film for the costumes and set designs (and soundtrack)!
Below is a trailer of the movie:

Oh I quite enjoyed this. Anything with Ben Barnes and/or Colin Firth is a winner in my book and the costumes were stunning.

Hmm, I vaguely remember netflix-ing that one! Gorgeous costumes, but I found the movie rather slow-moving.
