Kevin Kline turns in a skilled performance as American composer Cole Porter in this biographical drama by Irwin Winkler. Told in flashback, the film explores Porter's complex relationship with Linda Lee (Ashley Judd) whom he loved unconditionally despite his sexual preference for men. As expected, Porter's music takes center stage in the film, with pop stars like Elvis Costello, Natalie Cole, and Alanis Morissette singing his standards to great effect. "The songs seem to rise so naturally out of the material and illuminate it" (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times).
