Based on Elizabeth Taylor's 1957 novel 'The Real Life of Angel Deverell', this is the campest rags to riches story you will ever see. Impoverished young writer Angel (Garai) soon finds her lurid romantic fiction has made her the toast of London and as she accumulates wealth she becomes obsessed with caddish philanderer Esmé (Fassbender). Hilarious and thoroughly entertaining.
