Founded in 1989, The Film Circuit division of the Toronto International Film Festival brings the best of Canadian and international films to communities across the country which would not otherwise have the opportunity to see these features. We hope to bring movies that our audiences enjoy and to also provoke discussion and new perspectives to our world. These films appeal to all adults and we look forward to growing out attendance during the coming year!
Synopsis: Beautiful and manipulative young widow Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale), known as "the most accomplished flirt in all England" visits the estate of her in-laws to wait out the colorful rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society. While there, she tries to find a husband for her eligible but reluctant daughter, Frederica.
In doing so she attracts the simultaneous attentions of the young, handsome Reginald DeCourcy (Xavier Samuel), the rich and silly Sir James Martin (Tom Bennett) and the divinely handsome, but married, Lord Manwaring (Lochlann O'Mearáin), complicating matters severely.
