"...Witty....A romantic comedy that gently tweaks the aristocracy..."
Dame Andrews plays the aristocratic matriarch of an upper class British family whose eldest son (Atterton) causes an uproar when he announces his engagement to Miranda (Tripplehorn), a Hollywood starlet. The family is even more appalled when it is learned that she is the sister of the house maids. Luckily, Mr. Baldwin shows up from Hollywood to profess his love for Miranda and to try and woo her away from the English Lord and his stuffy family. An extremely witty farce, adapted from a play by the inimitable Noel Coward.
Description by Image Entertainment:
A comedy of discriminating taste and dirty little secrets. When a movie star and Hollywood diva Miranda Frayle break up, a playboy prince with a stiff upper lip sweeps her off her feet and boldly takes her home to meet his high-class, society-minded mother, who is none-too-pleased at the thought of having a "starlet" in the family. But when the former boyfriend hears about the wedding, he jumps back in the spotlight--and with the help of Miranda's meddling mother-in-law to be, he may just win her back.
