Plot Summary

Irresponsible playboy Arthur Bach (Russell Brand) has always relied on two things to keep him out of real trouble: his great wealth and the advice of his lifelong nanny, Hobson (Helen Mirren). But now Arthur must undertake the most-expensive risk of his life. He must choose between an arranged marriage that will keep him in the money or a more-modest life with the only woman (Greta Gerwig) he has ever loved. A remake of the 1981 Oscar-winning film.

    This Arthur cravenly turns Susan into a monstrous status-seeker, making her less of a human being and thus much easier for Arthur to trample over in securing a meaningful adult relationship. show more
