Set primarily in a small British town, the movie follows the story of a young woman seeking revenge on her ex-boyfriend, with the help of her two female friends. The story begins with a young woman named Georgina (Helena Bonham Carter), who is devastated when her longtime boyfriend, Julian (played by Rupert Graves), abruptly breaks up with her without any clear explanation. To make matters worse, Georgina's life seems to have hit a standstill, as she is stuck in a dead-end job at a local travel agency and unable to move on from her past relationship. However, things start to change when Georgina meets her former boyfriend's new girlfriend, Natasha (Kristin Scott Thomas), a glamorous and sophisticated woman who appears to have everything Georgina has ever wanted. Fueled by jealousy, Georgina decides to launch a plan to get revenge on Julian, with the help of her two closest friends: a hairdresser named Amber (Jane Lapotaire) and a travel agent named Meredith (Prunella Scales). The trio of women set out to make Julian jealous by creating a fake boyfriend for Georgina, a rugged and mysterious man named Archie (Sam Neill). Together, Georgina and Archie pretend to be in a passionate romance, leading Julian to become increasingly jealous and frustrated. As Julian's jealousy grows, Georgina starts to question whether or not her plan for revenge is really worth pursuing. At the same time, she begins to feel a genuine connection with Archie, leading to a series of romantic encounters that complicate her plan even further. Throughout the film, the tension builds between Georgina and Julian, as she works to make him feel the pain and heartbreak he caused her when he broke up with her. But as the story progresses, Georgina realizes that her desire for revenge is not bringing her the satisfaction she thought it would, and that the happiness she's been seeking may be closer than she thinks. Sweet Revenge is a witty and engaging romantic comedy that explores themes of love, heartbreak, and the power of revenge. With a stellar cast of actors and a cleverly written script, this film is a must-see for anyone who loves a classic love story with a twist.
