This deft and light-hearted drama is a lively and engaging parable about the ways husbands under-appreciate their wives' creativity.
Alec Bolton (Jonathan Pryce) is a successful English writer who has just landed a lucrative contract with Vanni (Christopher Walken), a wealthy American publisher in London. However, when his wife Kate (Carol Bouquet) also gets a contract for her first novel, he goes ballistic and destroys their marriage. She turns to Vanni who woos and weds her. However, he also can't handle her creativity and independence.
Carol Bouquet gives a stunning and lovely performance as Kate, a talented woman who eventually finds happiness and fulfillment on her own.
Director Charlotte Brandstrom hits all the right notes in this satisfying drama.
