Genre: Romance, Drama, Comedy, Period Piece

Tagline: Seduction. Sex. Scandal. She's the talk of the town.

Plot: Set in the 1930s on the beautiful shores of the Italian Riviera, Lions Gate Films' A GOOD WOMAN follows the seductive Mrs. Erlynne (Helen 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 (Tom 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. -- © Lions Gate

external good enough to have warranted an art-house distribution before now, but at least the film has not been lost on a distributor's dusty shelves or relegated to a straight-to-DVD release. The dialogue and performances are worth more than that. 3/4

external linkBeautifully adapted, ravishingly filmed and perfectly performed, this movie oozes class from every frame. 5/5
--Scott Andrews (

external linkEnjoyable, well made period drama with a witty, engaging script and strong performances from Johansson, Hunt and Wilkinson. 3/5

external linkThe setting is of course lovely but its all strangely unengaging – it feels pointless and unnecessary and almost as if the director just fancied a holiday in Italy. Take your grandmother to see it by all means but she might not thank you for it! 4/10
