A comedy of discriminating taste and dirty little secrets, the story is set in 1952 England, where Nigel, the Earl of Marshwood, woos Hollywood star Miranda Frayle, upsetting both his mother, Countess Felicity of Marshwood, and her former love, fellow Hollywood star Don Lucas. Right before the engagement party to be held at Marshwood, Moxie, the Countess's personal maid and best friend reveals that Miranda is her estranged sister. Crestwell, the Countess's butler, quickly devises a plan-but an inebriated Lucas's arrival at Marshwood to try to talk to Miranda causes all chaos to break loose.Written by

Whilst filming on the Isle of Man in 1999, the cast joined members of the public to watch the eclipse. This provoked such surprise that more people ended up watching Julie Andrews than the eclipse. See more »
I'm absolutely determined that the Countess of Marshwood shall be the longest, and greatest, role I ever played.
I do hope you won't find it too much of a strain.
I do know what I'm talking about. I've played it for years. I find it a good part, but technically rather exhausting.

Absolutely and utterly delightful in every way. A triumph!!!!! The story is a bubbling confection of the highest order and the cast is sheer perfection. Colin Firth, one of my favorites was never better. Julie Andrews as always was wonderful. But the cast was uniformly good, a perfect ensemble acting tour de force. My only quibble was Julie Andrews' atrocious costumes - good grief were they AWFUL - wrong colors, wrong cuts, wrong everything. At least finally in the last scene her outfit was attractive, but all through the film I groaned every time Andrews entered the scene with another positively awful costume. Geez! In a major production such as this you would think they would have a designer who understood color and line. But everything else in the film was great. In fact, Jeanne Tripplehorn appears at the end in one of the most beautiful outfits I have ever seen in film - a bright yellow pantsuit that is sublime. She looked fantastic throughout the film. William Baldwin truly looked like the most popular movie star in the world, the character he played. And with Tripplehorn they were a smashing pair. Romance everywhere!
