Plot

Love Among the Ruins (film) Love Among The Ruins DVD

The story is set in 1911, at the end of the Edwardian period. Jessica Medlicott (Hepburn) is an aging grande dame, formerly an actress of the London theatre, accused of having met, courted, promised marriage; and then jilted and abandoned, her suitor. The much-younger ex-fiancé then files suit, seeking £50,000 in damages for the breach of promise by her. She retains the services of the greatest barrister in the Empire (Olivier) to defend her. He is incidentally, also a man she seduced and abandoned (40 years earlier); but who has remained hopelessly in love with her ever since.
