Relative Values ★★½ 1999 (PG-13)

The upper crusty Countess of Marshwood (Andrews) is appalled when her son Nigel (Atterton) wants to marry American starlet Miranda (Tripplehorn). And she isn't the only one—Miranda has jilted her Hollywood star boyfriend Don (Baldwin), who shows up at the Marshwood's country house to change her mind, and she also has a long-lost sister, Moxie (Thompson), who happens to be the Countess' maid. Slight but witty confection, based on a 1951 Noel Coward play. 92m/C VHS, DVD .
