From Academy Award Winning screenwriter Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, Brazil, Empire of the Sun), The Romantic Englishwoman credibly explores the notion that a writer can manipulate the people in his life as deftly as he can manipulate the characters in his imagination.
The title character Elizabeth, (Two-time Academy Award Winner, Glenda Jackson, Hopscotch, Sunday Bloody Sunday) is the wife of Lewis (Two-time Academy Award Winner, Michael Caine, The Dark Knight, Hannah and Her Sisters), a novelist. At this point in his life, Lewis thinks in nothing but literary terms: Elizabeth is vacationing in Europe alone, ergo she must be having an affair. Half out of frustration, she confirms her husband's suspicions by romancing German drug dealer Thomas (Helmut Berger, The Godfather III, Iron). Things get even dicier when Lewis invites Thomas into his home, requesting his technical advice on a screenplay he is working on. Also starring Academy Award Nominee Kate Nelligan (The Prince of Tides, Premonition) and Michael Lonsdale (Of Gods and Men, Ronin). First time ever on DVD!

to realize that the story went back and forth, but I soon caught on and enjoyed it more. I appreciated the look of the era from clothing to households
to how movies were made in the 70s. I appreciated the smothered wife scenes as well. It was fun and entertaining for the night. I enjoyed Glenda Jackson in this much more than in Lost and Found. It is worth renting. (Maybe the au-pere scenes were odd, but I could deal with them.)
