A comedy of discriminating taste and dirty little secrets, the story is set in 1952 England, where Nigel, the Earl of Marshwood, woos Hollywood star Miranda Frayle.

This union upsets both Nigel�s mother, Countess Felicity of Marshwood, and her former love, fellow Hollywood star Don Lucas.

Right before the engagement party to be held at Marshwood, Moxie, the Countess's personal maid and best friend reveals that Miranda is her estranged sister.

Crestwell, the Countess's butler, quickly devises a plan-but an inebriated Lucas's arrival at Marshwood to try to talk to Miranda causes all chaos to break loose.

The family is appalled to learn that she is the sister of the house maids. Luckily, Mr. Baldwin shows up from Hollywood to profess his love for Miranda and to try and woo her away from the English Lord and his stuffy family.

An extremely witty farce, adapted from a play by the inimitable Noel Coward.

This movie is rated PG for language.
