Two "wretchedly happy married women," Julia and Jane stir up all kinds of sexy trouble -- and many, many cocktails -- in Noël Coward's naughty comedy Fallen Angels. Bored silly by high society, these besties are elated when a mutual ex-lover drifts back into town, bringing with him hints of adventure and reigniting their shared desire for his many charms.
