Starring Judy Greer and Melanie Lynskey, Lady of the Manor is a delightful (if predictable) comedy that highlights its talented cast.
There’s something refreshingly quaint about Lady of the Manor. Written and directed by brothers Justin Long and Christian Long (in their directorial debut no doubt), Lady of the Manor is a simple, straightforward comedy that doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel. There aren’t many side-splitting gags, and the story, in many ways, is conventional; however, the movie remains charming nonetheless, and is sure to elicit a few chuckles from the audience. Starring Judy Greer and Melanie Lynskey, Lady of the Manor is a delightful (if predictable) comedy that highlights its talented cast.
Lynskey plays Hannah, a stoner-slacker who hits rock bottom after bad luck and poor judgment result in her being arrested. Homeless and with nowhere to go, she jumps at the chance to move into the historic home of Wadsworth Manor and give tours while in character as Lady Wadsworth, a Southern belle who died in 1875. Not surprisingly, Hannah is ill-suited for the job, and her ineptitude quickly attracts the ire of the real Lady Wadsworth (played by Greer) who haunts the home.
