3.5 out of 5 stars
A surprising treat of a movie. Witty, often subversive, with great performances. Kate Beckinsale is top notch here as Lady Susan, the delightfully calculating femme fatale. But perhaps the star of of the show is Tom Bennet’s Sir James Martin. The scene with him enthralled by a plate of peas (‘tiny green balls’) is worth the price of cinema admission!
