Format: DVD
The script is beautiful with lots of wit and eloquence that isn't seen very often in movies. The acting is fabulous and one can't help but get very attached to the characters. Plus the movie isn't without its twists which is a bonus.

Helen Hunt plays a lady who is hated by women and loved by men for the simple reason that she is an infamous mistress who lives off the money of her suitors. After the unhappy wives conspire to have her cut off from their husbands' purse strings she hatches a plan to travel to Amalfi and find new blood.

Meg (Scarlet Johansson) is married to a rich American, Robert, who ends up being blackmailed by Helen Hunt after he goes home with her one day. His friend John in the meanwhile has developed feelings for Meg and after hearing the gossip about Robert and his mistress decides that it is time to strike.

In addition to these characters are the numerous Americans on holiday in Italy who have nothing better to do than spy on others, gossip and party away thus ensuring there is never a dull moment in the little town on the Italian coast.

This is a must see movie and Helen Hunt shines in her lead role.

As with a good book, they say that a good film should make you feel as though you are there. This is a marvellous combination of seduction and scandal, based on Oscar Wilde's "Lady Windermere's Fan", set in and around Amalfi in the 1930s (rather than Victorian London) amidst beautiful scenery, and I could almost feel a part of it. I have not read Lady Windermere's Fan, but if it is anything like this film, I might be tempted. You have to feel some compassion for Meg Windermere and, ultimately, Mrs Erlynne, but at least there is a happy outcome. Highly recommended.

Format: DVD
A Good Woman is a beautiful period film, full of beautiful people in beautiful locations, but with an added depth to it - the result of its intriguing storyline, which is based on Oscar Wilde's play Lady Windermere's Fan. Helen Hunt plays a supposedly amoral middle-aged man-hunter who seemingly heads off to Italy to bag her latest catch, with the emphasis very much on "supposedly" and "seemingly". She is superb in this role, even though I had doubts about her ability to play a period character before seeing the film, having previously only seen her in films such as Paying It Forward and As Good As It Gets. Scarlett Johansson too does a fantastic job playing Meg Windermere, a woman as beautiful as she is insecure. Most impressive of all in this film, however, is Mark Umbers, an actor I hadn't come across before. Playing Robert Windermere, he displays all the suave sophistication one would associate with a member of his class at the time, but at the same time is extremely likeable due to his total infatuation with his wife. The one problem I had with film was that the dialogues were a little bit too clever at times and therefore came over as unreal, but when a film is based on an Oscar Wilde play, I guess this is an unresolveable problem, as if you change the dialogue too much, the association with Wilde is lost. Moreover, maybe people prior to the age of television and the Internet were far more witty and clever than they are today. Watch out for the scene with Helen Hunt and Tom Wilkinson on the terrace of the opera house - a cinematographic feast in blue.

What a lovely story! Oscar Wilde's Lady Windomere's Fan is the base for this marvelous movie with excellent actors and a moving and memorable story. The movie is set in Italy with lots of sumptuous interiors and clothes. Meg is newly wed and thinks her mother is dead but she is very much alive and arrives to unexpectedly join the couple and creates intrique and complications. A modern story about overly high standards in relationships and how to live more realistically and more honestly. I have watched it over and over and every time see more subtleties and more depth. Highly recommended!

This is a relationship drama. The characters are high-class British and American tourists/expats in a small seaside town in pre-WW2 Italy.

Helen Hunt is just fabulous, playing the role of a middle-aged American woman who excels at milking money out of rich gentlemen in New York. The first scene of the movie shows how she's forced to escape. She ends up in Italy where she gets strangely involved with a freshly married young American man. His wife, in turn, becomes a target of an inventive and persistent aristocrat playboy form England. The plot is very captivating and full of surprises.

The movie is based on a story "Lady Windermere's Fan" by Oscar Wilde, so you might already know what's it all about. I have no idea if and how much the movie might be different from the book, but I'm looking forward to reading it. This movie got me interested in Oscar Wilde. It's mostly because it contains so many adorable puns and aphorisms, like:
"Every saint has a past. Every sinner has a future."
or:
"Do you think she would look at you if you were poor?" - "Do you think I would look at her if she was ugly?"

On the other hand, this abundance of brilliant verbal humour is also mildly disturbing. When every third sentence is something witty, it gets a bit tiring to follow. I mean, you don't want the soup that is all water, but this movie is like the soup with almost no water in it, and that's not too good either.

In spite of that, I've watched the movie three times by now and I absolutely recommend it. A lady friend of mine watched it twice and loved it, too.
