Drama
If we close our eyes and picture Shelley Winters, for instance, or maybe Divine, saying Julianne Moore�s dialogue as the social-climbing wife of the Bakelite plastics heir (Stephen Dillane), then this melodrama of manners becomes hilarious. Otherwise, it�s only ridiculous -- an artsy-soapy drawing room study of bored contempt and idle peccadilloes amongst the 1950s-'60s-'70s jet set in Europe, with the unhappy couple�s gay son (Eddie Redmayne of The Good Shepherd in a thankless role) as the butt of the sick joke. It�s never quite sick enough, though. Howard A. Rodman�s screenplay could use some laugh lines and Tom (Swoon) Kalin�s worshipful direction is more irritating than funny (97 min.).
