Impromptu (1991) short review

It’s been a very long time since I’ve seen this movie about the relationship between pianist Frederic Chopin (Hugh Grant) and George Sand (Judy Davis). Set in the 1830s, what I really remember is Emma Thompson as a ditzy woman who both main characters visit — Thompson’s character really works well with the froofy ’30s styles.
