Synopsis

Watch: Easy Virtue 2008 123movies, Full Movie Online – Between world wars, the Whittaker’s estate is sinking. Only the iron will of Mrs. Veronica Whittaker (Dame Kristin Scott Thomas) staves off bankruptcy while she awaits her son John’s (Ben Barnes’) return from the continent. To her dismay, he brings a bride: an American widow who races cars. The bride, Larita (Jessica Biel), thinks she and John will visit and then go to London, where he’ll work and she’ll race. But John is to the manor born, and mother is nothing if not a master at plans and manipulation. Soon it’s all-out war between mother and bride, with John’s father, Mr. Whittaker (Colin Firth), a burnt out veteran of the Great War, in the bride’s corner ineffectually. Mother has a plan to join with the neighboring estate; only Larita is in her way. Can’t we all get along?.
Plot: A young Englishman marries a glamorous American. When he brings her home to meet the parents, she arrives like a blast from the future – blowing their entrenched British stuffiness out the window.

Witty & Wonderful
Easy Virtue is a very liberal adaptation of Noel Coward’s play. Director Stephan Elliot (The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert) has tried to make the film more contemporary and very distinct from the Merchant-Ivory school of film.

The story is set in the roaring twenties where John (Ben Barnes) from an aristocratic English family marries Larita (Jessica Biel), an American race driver, after a whirlwind romance in France. However his mother Veronica (Kristin Scott Thomas) is none too pleased while John’s father Jim (colin Firth) finds a soul mate in Larita. These relationships, including those with John’s sisters, make for a very intriguing and entertaining hour and a half, The acting, as could be expected from such a cast is uniformly excellent with perhaps Jessica Biel standing out a little more.

One of Stephan Elliot’s nice touches is an anachronistic use of such songs as Car Wash and Sex Bomb, done in a very twenties style. The addition of a hilarious “dog scene” is another nice touch. Fans of Noel Coward (and even Merchant-Ivory) won’t be disappointed.

Unusual but rewarding
A bit of an odd one, this. Based on an obscure Noel Coward play (and previously filmed by Hitchcock in 1928 as a silent drama), young John Whittaker arrives back at the family’s stately home with his new wife in tow. When Mother finds out that Larita is American she is appalled, and begins to systematically undermine this very capable young lady. John’s two sisters are inclined towards their mother’s position, while Father (who, following his war experiences, is pretty disengaged from the family), likes Larita. What follows is a comedy of manners which develops into something rather more serious.

Jessica Biel plays Larita, and rather well, too. Kristen Scott Thomas is a politely venomous, and very funny, Mother. Colin Firth’s Father is sad and serious (but with some great one liners) seeing what goes on, and perhaps being somewhat more interested than the impression he gives, but with a drastically different sense of priorities to the rest of his relatives. Ben (Prince Caspian) Barnes plays John as written, a pretty but callow young man. Kris Marshall gets most of the funniest bits of business as a perpetually acidic (and very 21st century) butler.

This film plays off the British class system and the institutionalised snobbery it embodies (especially in 1928), and may therefore not translate well in other countries. It is very funny in places, particularly in the first half, but ultimately it isn’t really a comedy. Many – most, perhaps – of the main characters simply aren’t very nice people.

As events proceed you begin to get a feeling for what you would like to happen, but you are only too aware that your preferred resolution would be a very modern way to finish the story off. As a result, the conclusion came as a surprise to me. If this was the way Coward’s original play finished, then it would have been profoundly subversive in 1928.

There are a number of anachronisms sprinkled throughout the movie – some are, I suspect, accidental (the occasional very contemporary turn of phrase jars a bit) while others (Car Wash on the soundtrack in a 1920s style arrangement) are nice touches.

This film is a little bit off the wall, but I liked it a lot.
