An average movie

Honestly, I never heard of this movie before but since there was a nice cast, I thought I should check it out anyway. I realised afterwards that it was a remake of a very old obscure Alfred Hitchcock feature from 1928. Anyway, the cast was pretty neat and Colin Firth and Kristin Scott Thomas were, as usual, both fine. Above all,  I was actualy pleasantly surprised by Jessica Biel. Indeed, at firs... read more

Easy Virtue

9 months ago at Jan 14 3:00
Have you ever thought that what the film adaptation of a Noel Coward play needed was Jazz Age covers of “Car Wash” and “Sex Bomb”? Me neither, but Easy Virtue has them, and a few random musical numbers as well. Sure, the sight of Ben Barnes crooning some Cole Porter is enough to make me quiver and swoon, but it’s not enough to save Easy Virtue from the tedium that sets in. Damn shame as ... read more

Description: The twenties have roared… the thirties have yet to swing. John Whittaker, a young Englishman, falls madly in love with Larita, a sexy and glamorous American woman, and they marry impetuously.

Larita quickly realizes Mrs. Whittaker’s game and sees that she must fight back if she’s not going to lose John. A battle of wits ensues and sparks soon fly. Mrs. Whittaker manipulates every situati ... (more)

“Have you ever thought that what the film adaptation of a Noel Coward play needed was Jazz Age covers of “Car Wash” and “Sex Bomb”? Me neither, but Easy Virtue has them, and a few random musical numbers as well. Sure, the sight of Ben Barnes crooning some Cole Porter is enough to make me quiver and swoon, but it’s not enough to save Easy Virtue from the tedium that sets in. Damn shame as Coward’s at his best when the fizziness and artifice of his language (and sharp edged bon mots) are allowed the appropriate room to breathe. But we do get to watch Jessica Biel get outclassed by the acting prowess of Kristin Scott Thomas during their numerous verbal spats, and play vague flirtation and coy sexual attraction with Colin Firth as her traumatized father-in-law.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- September 2017 (29 movies items)

" Netflix- 1hr. 36min. First Viewing There's a fun, screwball comedy somewhere hiding in East Virtue, with ample doses of fish-out-of-water and cultural clash plot points, that peaks out of every scene. Unfortunately, the film is too miscalculated to work, draining every possible scene of energy to the point of coma. There are some strong moments here and there, and the cast is pretty solid (though Biel, trying her damnedest, feels miscast), but very little comes together in a satisfying way; it'"
