An up-and-coming Wall Street lawyer from a working-class family aspires to quit and enjoy life once he's made enough money, a prospect that doesn't thrill his well-born fiancee but excites her more unconventional sister. Can his dreams survive his soon-to-be bride's narrow view of affluence? Opposing societal hierarchies and differing views of success confront each other in this timely commentary on how to pursue a life worth living. This classic romantic comedy set in the 1920s became a beloved 1938 film starring Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn.
