Set in 1930s London, this movie involves stage actors and actresses and their experiences with love and revenge.
Evie (Juliet Stevenson), Julia's (Annette Bening's) maid, insinuates that Dolly de Vries (Miriam Margolyes) may be a lesbian for always visiting during Julia's massages. This may be an in-joke, as Margolyes has been with her partner, Heather Sutherland, since 1968.
I think I used to know your father in Jersey, he was a doctor, wasn't he? He used to come to our house quite often.
Julia Lambert: Actually, he was a vet, he used to go to your house to deliver the bitches. Your house was full of them.
The picture frame that Julia picks up from the piano on stage has plastic hanging hooks on the back in a style and manufacturing method which would not have been available in 1938 England.
