Set in post-World War I England, Easy Virtue concerns a British playboy (Ben Barnes) who marries a modernistic racecar driver (Jessica Biel) and brings her home to his stuffy, aristocratic family. Easy Virtue is directed and co-written by Stephan Elliott, adapted from Cole Porter's play. Special features include a commentary by director Elliot and co-writer Sheridan Jobbins, deleted scenes and a blooper reel. I haven't yet seen Easy Virtue, but it seems like a bloody good time with a lot of actors doing what they do best — Kristen Scott Thomas playing the frigid mother, Colin Firth as the terribly snarky father and Jessica Biel, well, being hot and provocative.
