A young Hungarian girl struggles to find her place in the world when she's reunited with her parents in the USA years after she was left behind during their flight from the communist country in the 1950s.
In 1930, Mrs. Erlynne, who describes herself as poor and infamous, driven from New York society by jealous wives, sees a news photo of wealthy Lord Windermere and his young wife: she heads for the Amalfi Coast to be among the rich and famous for 'the season' and to snare Mr. Windermere. Gossips twitter as he spends his afternoons with her, his wife blissfully innocent as she blushingly fends off attentions from a young English nobleman, an international playboy who thinks he's in love. Mrs. Erlynne is also pursued by a worldly-wise older English nobleman. Mrs. Windermere's 20th birthday party approaches, where all plays out amid numerous amoral Wildean aphorisms. Written by

Excellent language used. every sentence has double innuendo. one wonders what is the absolute meaning of it all. simply awesome! Oscar Wilde..i guess that says it all.
i would love to see another. excellent work by Helen Hunt.And of course by all the characters in the movie. The society at large will always remain that way, no matter how many good/bad women come and go! The society has always had a culture, this culture is very well put by the movie. the movie progresses slowly but with the flow of language, one is easily put in place. this wont change...this is a part of every society and culture, no matter where we go.
Truly a good movie, by the end of it all. Worth a watch!
