Film - Easy Virtue (2008) - Presented by Barbara Steffek-Hill
Son of an English landed gentry family, John Whittaker (Ben Barnes) delivers shock waves when he brings home his American car racing bride Larita (Jessica Biel). The cause of inadvertent mistakes, Larita incurs the wrath of drama queen mother-in-law Veronica Whittaker (Kristin Scott Thomas) and her two daughters. The only one in Larita’s corner, other than her husband, is father-in-law Mr. Whittaker (Colin Firth), a veteran affected by nightmarish remembrances of his service in the Great War. Veronica admits a secret she’s been keeping. She believes the only option for saving the estate lies in selling some parcels of land. Barbara Steffek-Hill presents a series of classic and contemporary films from her personal favorites.
