Set in the 1930s on the beautiful shores of the Italian Riviera, Lions Gate Films’ A GOOD WOMAN follows the seductive Mrs. Erlynne (Hunt), scorned by many as a ‘woman of ill repute,’ leaves New York for the Amalfi coast, where she hopes to find a new ‘patron’ among the vacationing aristocrats. The mean-spirited gossip stirred up by Mrs. Erlynne’s arrival isn’t enough to dissuade the jovial, kind-hearted Lord Augustus (Wilkinson) from falling in love with her. But Mrs. Erlynne has already set her sights on the married Robert Windermere (Mark Umbers), a wealthy young American who falls quickly under her spell. Windermere’s faithful wife, Meg (Johansson), is herself distracted by the flirtatious overtures of Lord Darlington (Stephen Campbell Moore), a notorious playboy. But when she learns of her husband’s blossoming affair, Meg resorts to drastic measures, with unexpected consequences for everyone involved…

Brimming with sumptuous locales and sweeping romance, A GOOD WOMAN is a sophisticated ode to Wilde’s legendary wit and wisdom, beautifully directed by Mike Barker from a sparkling script by Howard Himelstein.
