A Good Woman Reviews

Camerin Courtney
Christianity Today

If you enjoy the charming wit of films such as An Ideal Husband or Enchanted April, you'll probably be Wilde about A Good Woman.

| Original Score: 3/4

Jam! Movies

A bit of a muddle at the ending, but the performances are pleasant (Tom Wilkinson is outstanding) and the humour is quick and subversive.

Kaplan vs. Kaplan

It's (Tom) Wilkinson who really saves the movie. His acting is always outstanding --- he makes it appear so effortless.

The working title for this film might have been 'Bartlett's Familiar Quotations as Spoken by Brits in Italy'.

Film Blather

It's brief, frivolous, and extremely entertaining even as some of it seems forced, and the film lacks the elegance of Wilde's wordplay.

The famous Oscar Wilde wit tempered with gorgeous Italian sunsets. You could do worse.

The production is beautifully costumed and cast, and Hunt acquits herself quite nicely while playing entirely against type.

The movie is gorgeous to look at, the script has a killer twist and the cast is competent.

A good woman (or a good movie) may not be as hard to find as a good man, but you have to know where to look. This is worth checking out.

For those in the mood for love, A Good Woman is more than good. It's one of the best films of the new year.

For the eyes, it's a cinematic banquet filled with the colors, wardrobe and scenery of 1930s Italy. For the mind, it's a sleek, intelligent story about love and money.

Strained of much of its Englishness...A Good Woman earns most of its good will from those Wildean epigrams.

Wilde provides the quips, Helen Hunt the acting chops, Scarlett Johansson the ample bosom, and all of it is filtered through golden mediterranean light.

A clever rearranging of Oscar Wilde's first great play, Lady Windermere's Fan.

[Tom] Wilkinson artfully deepens a character who in Wilde's original play was rather boobish. It's a marvelous performance in a pretty good film.

It might be empty calories, but A Good Woman is a tasty bonbon, the equal of the recent film version of Wilde's An Ideal Husband.

| Original Score: 2.5/4

Eleanor Ringel Gillespie
Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Top Critic IconTop Critic

A stunning setting, clever dialogue, gorgeous period costumes by John Bloomfield (he did last year's Being Julia) and a honey of a performance by Wilkinson as a practical man of great means who sees nothing wrong in being wanted for his money.

Palo Alto Weekly

Passionate flair periodically turns theatrical but a snappy twist of a climax marks this social satire with a scarlet A for effort.
