Biel still appears uncomfortable. She would do well to get more experience under her belt before reaching for a corset. If she caught any break, it's that Easy Virtue only pretends to be upscale cinema.
Easy Virtue has all the elements for a sprightly romp with serious underpinnings, and occasionally it achieves that balance. But it's marred by attempts at farce that are as belabored as they are ill-advised.
Full of forced jocularity and drawing-room hissy fits, with its cast parading around in vintage threads and antique cars, Easy Virtue is a close-to-insufferable souffle based on the 1925 Noel Coward play.
