Story


"An elegant and witty romantic comedy based on Oscar Wilde's classic play, "Lady Windermere's Fan."

Set in the 1930s on the beautiful shores of the Italian Riviera, Lions Gate Films' "A Good Woman" follows the seductive Mrs. Erlynne (Hunt), scorned by many as a 'woman of ill repute,' leaves New York for the Amalfi coast, where she hopes to find a new 'patron' among the vacationing aristocrats. The mean-spirited gossip stirred up by Mrs. Erlynne's arrival isn't enough to dissuade the jovial, kind-hearted Lord Augustus (Wilkinson) from falling in love with her. But Mrs. Erlynne has already set her sights on the married Robert Windermere (Mark Umbers), a wealthy young American who falls quickly under her spell. Windermere's faithful wife, Meg (Johansson), is herself distracted by the flirtatious overtures of Lord Darlington (Stephen Campbell Moore), a notorious playboy. But when she learns of her husband's blossoming affair, Meg resorts to drastic measures, with unexpected consequences for everyone involved...

Brimming with sumptuous locales and sweeping romance, "A Good Woman" is a sophisticated ode to Wilde's legendary wit and wisdom, beautifully directed by Mike Barker from a sparkling script by Howard Himelstein.
