I haven't read the book, but now I plan to after watching this. I randomly picked a movie on our flight to New Orleans and this was the one. I keep seeing advertisements everywhere, so I finally decided to just jump in. 

After Mr. Malcom embarrasses Julia by ending their courtship because she doesn't fit what he is looking for in a wife, she decides to get a little karma. She brings in her country friend, Selina, to be everything he wants and then break his heart and embarrasses him in front of everyone just like he did to her. Things, of course, don't go according to plan. 

This was a fun watch. All our characters are complex and are not perfect. Which I adore when we have some big flaws, but then some big good things. 

Oh, Julia....I get it. I get how embarrassed she was in front of the ton. They are ruthless especially since she is getting old and still hasn't made a match. BUT I was super mad at her and she had like ZERO consequences on something she did. Tsk. In that one scene, she for sure stepped over a line.

OMG I did want to kick Mr. Malcolm. He enraged me with how stubborn and thick-headed he was being. Gah. 

Loved Selina. She reminded me a lot of Elizabeth from PP, but she was a little softer. Loved her. 

The cast was great. I really do want to read the book and see how well they played the characters. 

In the end, this was a pretty good movie. There was one scene that made me SO mad. Other than that this was a fun watch. If you like Bridgerton or any'll like this. I am now curious about the book. 4 stars from me.
