When she fails to meet an item on his list of requirements for a bride, Julia Thistlewaite (Zawe Ashton) is jilted by London’s most eligible bachelor, Mr. Malcolm (Sope Dirisu).
Feeling humiliated and determined to exact revenge, she convinces her friend Selina Dalton (Freida Pinto) to play the role of his ideal match.
Soon, Mr. Malcolm wonders whether he has found the perfect woman… or the perfect hoax. Author Suzanne Allain also wrote the screenplay for this resplendent period drama.
It's fun and romantic, with beautiful wardrobes and scenery and an outstanding cast. It checks almost all the right boxes.
