In 'Easy Virtue', Jessica Biel stars as avant-garde young woman, Larita, who takes the Whittaker family by storm and is forced to find a way to fight her mother-in-law's manipulation.
A brand new trailer of "Easy Virtue" has been debuted via Yahoo!. Through the two-minute video footage, it can be seen that the movie picks up a tagline suggesting vice can be a virtue. The trailer also presents a sneak peek at how Jessica Biel's Larita blows Whittaker family's entrenched British stuffiness out the window.
Based on Noel Coward's play of the same name, "Easy Virtue" tells the story of a sexy and glamorous American woman, Larita, whose sudden marriage to Englishman John Whittaker stuns his family. Joining John in his family home, she soon learns that her mother-in-law, Mrs. Whittaker, dislikes her and is doing whatever she can to get rid of her. Not willing to lose John, she now has to use her wit to counter attack Mrs. Whittaker's manipulation.
Pairing up Jessica Biel as Larita and Kristin Scott Thomas as Mrs. Whittaker, the Sony Pictures Classics movie also features the likes of Colin Firth, Ben Barnes, Katherine Parkinson and Kimberley Nixon. Directed and co-written by Stephan Elliott, the romantic comedy will be released in limited U.S. theaters on May 22.
