Storyline

Sir Robert Chiltern is a successful politician, leading a happy life with his wife Gertrude. Gertrude loves him because of his honesty and she despises all men who did horrible things in the past and have to do other immoral deeds to cover up what they're ashamed of. One day a certain Mrs. Laura Evely barges in on a party Robert is attending. She disappeared from the London society six years ago, but is now back with a vengeance. Mrs. Evely has invested in a project that Robert already has denounced as swindle and in fact he wants to start a special commission investigating the matter. But Laura has some important information that will harm Roberts career and his relationship with his wife severely. Laura wants him to publicly support the project or else she will disclose the proof that Robert once sold secret information from the government to a speculator. Chiltern calls in the help of his good friend lord Arthur Goring. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

can't think of a worse cast
28 January 2007 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

I watched the 1999 production with Jeremy Northam and Rupert Everett as the lead characters and the production was so good that I bought this DVD to see if there could be another different but as well good production or interpretation of a same script. I was so disappointed. Don't buy this and it is an absolute waste of time to watch. The cast was very poor with Sadie Frost being the worst. Her portrayal of the character cheapens the whole script, as if that Mrs.Chievely was some kind of a prostitute, or indecent woman. She has a very bad mannerism esp. in speaking her lines. I agree with another reviewer that this seems more like a low budget TV drama, instead of being a movie.
