Easy Virtue (2008)

This is another variation on a popular British theme, that of reserved stiff upper lip vs carefree libertine. While much of the acting is very, very good, the lead female - American Jessica Biel - is about as wooden as you can get which is disappointing as she is supposed to be the contrast to the stiff Brits.

The only son of a British gentry family brings home a wildly independent American woman who unsettles the status quo, despite noble efforts to fit in.

The sharp, witty dialogue truly saves the film.
