Based on the play by Noel Coward, which was first adapted by Alfred Hitchcock during the silent era, Easy Virtue is the epitome of British wit.
Laria, the American, is a Jazz Age racecar driver. After impulsively tying the knot in Monte Carlo with a young Englishman John Whittaker, she travels to England to meet her groom's privileged and batty family. Naturally, they hate her. John's mother, Mrs. Whittaker, and his sisters Hilda and Marion do their best to sabotage the newlyweds and banish their brother's shocking new wife. Only in the family's patriarch, Mr. Whittaker, does the young bride find acceptance, and the two develop a bond founded on the mutual appreciation for motorbikes and flouting social etiquiette.
