    Better known in her own day than even Charles Dickens, George Sand (Judy Davis) was the most celebrated writer of the early nineteenth century and possibly its most notorious Bohemian. Frederic Chopin (Hugh Grant) was one of the greatest musicians of his age who gained a legendary reputation throughout Europe as both a pianist and a composer. Impromptu is the comic and tender tale of how Sand and Chopin meet. How pursued by Sand, Chopin resists her advances. And of how, despite the best and most mischievous efforts of those around them, they eventually fall in love.
