Overview

One of Oscar Wilde's most popular plays is given a new screen interpretation in this period comedy. In New York in the early '30s, Mrs. Erlynne (Helen Hunt) is a widow who lives comfortably through the largesse of several married men, and when she runs out of wealthy suitors in Manhattan, she decides to find greener pastures among the wealthy elite of Italy's Amalfi coast. Mrs. Erlynne sets her sights on Robert Windermere (Mark Umbers), a wealthy Englishman who is married to the young, innocent and very beautiful Meg (Scarlett Johansson). Mrs. Erlynne gingerly tries to separate Robert from his wife and his money, fueling suspicions within Amalfi society as well as the audience that they are involved. Humiliated and ready to beat him at his own game, Meg begins to consider the advances of the handsome Lord Darlington (Stephen Campbell Moore), one of her husband's close friends. In the midst of all the attempted infidelity, the genially eccentric Tuppy (Tom Wilkinson) struggles to win Mrs. Erlynne's hand, while only one of the interconnected parties know that she carries a shocking secret. A Good Woman was based on Wilde's Lady Windermere's Fan, with its title drawn from that show's subtitle, "A Play About a Good Woman."

I love Scarlett Johansson, she has her great acting moments and this is one of them. The whole movie was engaging, but I didn't like how that old lady came in and ruined things. But, hey, what's a story without some bumps in the road? And too bad I thought the guy who loved her but she didn't love was hotter than the guy she did love (her husband, of course)--they should've switched roles! Aghhh! But anyways, it was good.

You'll need to pay attention not to miss the many lines in this beautiful film about new love's fragility, lost love's power, and intrigue amongst those who know nothing but think they do. Helen Hunt is seductive and different from any other role. Very good.

The sumptuous photography and terrific performances are the equal of Oscar Wilde's formidable dialogue. The nuances of the acting give the proper animation to the script.
