The Country Wife (2014)
Originally from the country, naive Mrs. Pinchwife is beginning to learn about the lifestyle and social etiquettes of aristocratic London with the help of her sister-in-law, Alithea. After only a few days in the capital, she is becoming more and more intrigued with the notorious lifestyles of the town women, much to her older husband's disgust. The combination of Mr. Pinchwife's chauvinistic and controlling nature, Mrs. Pinchwife's innocently flirtatious disposition and Alithea's assertiveness and sarcasm, makes for a cacophonous argument amongst the trio. Ah, how sweet it is to love!
