Entertaining period piece with a message

This movie is a little slow to get going and is largely made up of fluff more than substance, but it is enjoyable and shows its depth with time. There is a bit more sexual innuendo than I would have liked for my 13 yr old, but nothing gets graphic. Overall more of an adult film, but my daughter enjoyed it (perhaps, mainly because of the preence of Amy Adams)

Frances and Amy are delightful

The timing is wonderful.
