Angel, a sendup of costume melodramas based on a novel by British writer Elizabeth Taylor, tells the story of an unusual and talented young woman in Edwardian England who passionately pursues both professional success and love. Although Angel Deverell (Romola Garai) comes from modest stock -- her mother is a grocer -- and is discouraged by her teachers, she is determined from youth to become a great and admired writer. As a young woman, Angel finds success as a writer of popular romance novels, but her ambitions are not yet satisfied. With her writing income, she buys Paradise House, an ornate estate she dreamed about owning as a child. She also hires a secretary, Nora (Lucy Russell), and becomes smitten with Nora's brother, Esme (Michael Fassbender). Angel is used to getting what she wants and pursues Esme relentlessly. However, when war breaks out in Europe and Esme shows an interest in joining up, Angel's carefree way of life may come to an end.moreless
