I’m unfamiliar with the play, Lady Windermere’s Fan, which this is based on, and I think because of that I was able to enjoy it more. I can see from a few other reviews that people think Helen Hunt is miscast, but I thought she was great, it’s definitely not a role I’d picture her in but she did a good job in my opinion.
The script is rather sassy and clever, there were quite a few really bitchy moments and lines, they were very entertaining. The supporting cast have the best lines, especially Mulina Vukotic as Contessa Lucchino, she was hilarious.
The costuming is just stunning, in fact, the entire production design is major eye candy, I don’t know what I thought was nicer to look at, the costuming and sets or the handsome male cast.
I think this would make a great double feature with The Cat's Meow.
