Jessica Biel, Ben Barnes, Colin Firth
Directed by Stephan Elliott
The elegant barbed wit of Noel Coward bubbling up in a time of Wolverine grunts. I must be dreaming. But here it is, a 1920s-era comedy of bad manners done by experts. Jessica Biel is funny and touching as Larita, an American auto racer catching hell from the snob Brit parents (Colin Firth and Kristin Scott Thomas, both superb) of her new husband (Ben Barnes). Director Stephan Elliott uncorks a rare vintage of laughs tinged with heartache.
