I had high expectations going into Easy Virtue, because I had spotted it on a "best of summer films list". I was not disappointed. A young man brings his new bride home to meet his stuffy British family. The back stories come out gradually, everyone has baggage. Many moments are very funny. This Noel Coward play is well adapted to the screen. Stephan Elliot conducted a lively Q&A. Good film, good time.

I'm thrilled to hear this one lives up to the expectation. I look forward to catching up with it in a few weeks!
Marina~It's got a sharp script and is beautifully shot.
Easy Virtue has pretty good ratings across, but low buzz. How come?
WiseFlickGuy~ Dunno, maybe not enough star power? Though I'll say Ben Barnes really shines in this. Be interesting to see how it does. Most I've read has been very positive.
