The bishop asks him to visit an eccentric artist prone to sexual depictions and requests that he voluntarily withdraw a controversial work call "Crucified Venus" from his show.

The movie was filmed primarily at the real Norman Lindsay's home and 49 acre property, where he lived until his death in 1969. It is now a museum and art gallery. See more »
In the initial scene, Tara Fitzgerald and Hugh Grant's characters move from the house to the pond to wait for the Lindsays, with Fitzgerald carrying her suitcase. But in the next scene when they are woken up by the pond side by the Lindsays, we find in addition to her suitcase, their big trunk is also lying next to them. See more »
...did you know it could be dangerous to wake somebody up when they're dreaming, well, because you leave part of your brain behind. And if it happens too many times, you go feeble in the head.
Yeah. You're living proof.

Excellent entertainment value (for those who don't seek perfection in every fictional accounting of an event). You either like it or you don't! For those who didn't like and posted here, I am surprised you took such elaborate measures to critique it to the umpteenth degree. Had the movie been heralded as "The Greatest Movie Ever Made", I would better understand your criticism. However, since it was not, it doesn't really deserve the harshness of some of the posts in here. If your expectations were not fulfilled, its not the fault of the movie! And I'll bet dollars to do-nuts that the majority of the people who went to see this movie went to satisfy their curiosity regarding the nudity. Of all the scenes in this flick that have been talked about in these postings, the most obvious tongue in cheek scene has been overlooked. At the end, Lindsay walks into a building and tosses a hammer to the "blind" man sitting on a cot and says 'lets get to work'............the "blind" man deftly catches the hammer and gets up. For all those whose comments are detracting, at least give the author a little more credit for inserting that, so obvious, yet unmentioned.
