QUICK TAKE:
Romantic Comedy: Facing social ridicule and gossip after the city's most eligible bachelor passes on her for not meeting the requirements of his future spouse list, a 19th-century London socialite convinces her childhood friend to help her get revenge on him.
PLOT:

Eighteen years after meeting as girls at an early 19th-century ladies academy, Selina Dalton (FREIDA PINTO) lives in the English country, newly unemployed due to her elderly charge having died. Despite her situation, she is not looking for a husband.

Julia Thistlewaite (ZAWE ASHTON) lives in London with her mom and cousin, Lord Cassidy (OLIVER JACKSON-COHEN), and is looking for a husband, and has set her sights -- along with nearly every other single lady -- on the city's most eligible bachelor, John Malcolm (SOPE DIRISU).

But a trip to the opera with him goes badly and soon gossip spreads that she's doomed to be a spinster due to him allegedly spurning her affections, although that's far from the truth. Instead, Lord Cassidy learns that John has a list of requirements that any possible future spouse must meet.

Infuriated by that and having her reputation tarnished, Julia invites Selina to visit her with a plan of revenge where she'll fake meeting all of his requirements, only to then have him fail her own list. She reluctantly goes along, but is more interested in meeting her former employer's nephew, Captain Henry Ossory (THEO JAMES), who also happens to know John.

Nonetheless, John is smitten with Selina as she passes his list of requirements, and she starts to fall for him despite that list. Of course, the truth will eventually be revealed, thus threatening to nip any budding romance in the bud.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
