An Ideal Husband (play by Oscar Wilde)

I have found this film to be thoroughly enjoyable and amusing, I even managed to guffaw towards the end. The cast was very well chosen and all the main actors performed with excellence, especially Julianne Moore and Cate Blanchett.

Although theromance is a secondary plot (the main one involves blackmailand politics), it is of great importance in the film, because itactually triggers the main plot, especially towards the end of themovie.
