In the world of political intrigue and gossip dominating the social scene in Washington, few couples stood out quite like German nationals Elsa Breht (Redgrave) and her husband Ulrich Mott (Waltz). At their shabby townhouse in the fashionable suburb of Georgetown, guests found themselves in lively conversation with former world leaders and Supreme Court judges. The more titillating conversations would focus on the hosts themselves – what was an 80-year-old woman with a rolodex of influential friends doing married to a man of dubious background nearly three decades her junior? For Elsa’s Federal judge daughter Amanda, it was incomprehensible.
