  • Don't worry, the wife is always the last to know...

A slow melodrama set in the early 1900s, alternating between England and Italy. The daughter of America's first billionaire gets married to a penniless Italian nobleman. He, however, is in love with his wife's best friend, who has since married his wife's father. Since his wife and her father spend a lot of time alone together, it gives the lovers opportunity to do likewise. However, such illicit affairs cannot remain undetected for ever...

Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: Also walked out of this one, although the rest of the preview audience seemed enthralled. The storyline was so slow-moving, and, since the opening scene (set a few hundred years earlier) gave one a good idea of where this would end, there seemed little point in waiting 2 hours to get there. Beckinsale comes across far too flighty and scatterbrained (compared to, for example, Pearl Harbour) and the two lovers don't make sense - with so much money at stake, which is why they married as they did, why put it all at risk? Or was that the point -- that love matters more than money? In which case why did they not get married in the first place...
