~An Ideal Husband ...Week-End

Happy Week-end to all. This week-ends movie is a truly great one! So I hope you enjoy it!

An Ideal Husband is a 1999 film based on the play by Oscar Wilde. The film stars Jeremy Northam, Rupert Everett, Julianne Moore, Minnie Driver and Oscar winning actress Cate Blanchett. It was directed by Oliver Parker.
Sir Robert Chiltern is a successful Government minister, well-off and with a loving wife. All this is threatened when Mrs. Cheveley appears in London with damning evidence of a past misdeed. Sir Robert turns for help to his friend Lord Goring, an apparently idle philanderer and the despair of his father. Goring knows the lady of old and the plot to help his friend has unintended consequences.
