Set in the 1930s on Italy's beautiful Amalfi coastline, A GOOD WOMAN is an elegant, romantic comedy based on Oscar Wilde's play "Lady Windermere's Fan". A young couple's marriage is put in jeopardy by high-society gossip. Robert Windermere (Mark Umbers) is suspected of providing a secret allowance for Mrs. Erlynne (Helen Hunt) an older woman of ill repute. Meanwhile, Windermere's young wife, Meg (Scarlett Johansson), is attracting the attentions of Lord Darlington (Stephen Campbell Moore), a notorious playboy.
Mrs. Erlynne's arrival in the fashionable resort has drawn the attention of many of the men, in particular that of the wealthy Lord Augustus (Tom Wilkinson), who soon proposes marriage to her.
Events bubble to the surface at Meg's 21st birthday celebrations and she feels compelled to abandon the party and her husband to elope with the predatory Darlington. However, greater truths begin to emerge and it becomes apparent that dark family secrets lie beneath the elegant society surface.
