Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Jessica Biel in a teacup-rattling '20s period piece? With her lewd pinup grin and husky flat voice, she sticks out like a sore starlet in Easy Virtue -- but that's the whole point in this loosely 'freshened up' version of a Noel Coward play.
Rotten: There's supposed to be some distance between the main character and the family she marries into — but that distance probably shouldn't include acting styles.
Rotten: Elliott nearly turns the whole affair into a musical, with characters singing snatches of Coward and Cole Porter songs. But his sense of humor is extremely broad.
Fresh: [Director] Elliott had a choice in Easy Virtue, to turn away from the horror or face it. He takes his time, but he eventually does face it -- and delivers up a good movie.
I loved this movie! It's one of the best that I've seen in quite a while. Somehow it inspires something within each of us and you begin to recognize a bit of yourself in a character. The movie gets better as it goes along and finishes with an appropriate bang. Smiles amd laughs all the way through. I highly recommend it.
Jessica Biel is simply fantastic in this british comedy! Be sure to check it out, five stars!
Entertaining, but inaccurate description
Very entertaining (and at times hilarious) film, although Apple's short description is remarkably inaccurate. Unless I'm terribly dense, the movie makes it very clear (in fact it's a main plot point) that the American woman is a widow, not a divorcee.
