Kathy Bate's is Rupert Friend's mother in this film and feels the need to tame his boyish ways and get him to know how to treat a lady so hires her friend (Michelle Pfeiffer) to do it to celebrate the inception of her retirement as a courtesan. Little do they know the love that will follow, turning one weekend in Normandy into 6 years. When he has an arranged marriage they try to deny their feelings for eachother but can't shake it....
It's very sweet and romantic, but Rupert's character is irritating and very arrogant. I can't imagine being that position, I cried quite abit and my heart truly went out to them.
