Set in the 1930’s on the beautiful Italian Riviera A GOOD WOMAN is an elegant, witty, romantic comedy based on Oscar Wilde’s “Lady Windermere’s Fan”. A young couple’s marriage is put in jeopardy by high-society gossip of an affair blossoming. Robert Windermere (Mark Umbers) is accused with providing a secret allowance for Mr Erlynne (Helen Hunt) a vampish older woman of ill repute, whilst his wife, Meg Windermere (Scarlett Johansson), courts the attention of Lord Darlington (Stephen Campbell Moore), a notorious playboy.

Mrs Erlynne’s arrival on the Amalfi coast draws the attention of all men on the Riviera, in particular that of Lord Augustus “Tuppy” (Tom Wilkinson), who proposes to her at his first opportunity. Events boil to the surface at Meg’s 21st birthday party, forcing Meg to abandon her party with the intention of eloping with the predatory Lord Darlington. When the truth begins to emerge, it becomes apparent that the rumours of affairs were mere hearsay, but a darker secret of family ties lies beneath them.

Based on Oscar Wilde’s ‘Lady Windermere’s Fan’ A GOOD WOMAN will be released in the UK on May 13th 2005.
