"Cary Grant was from Surrey."

An interesting BBC News article about why so many British actors are cast as Americans, particularly on television:
Why are British actors playing Americans?

"Oscar-winning actress Dame Helen Mirren has complained about British actors being typecast as villains. But in US TV dramas, Brits are everywhere - you just wouldn't know it from their accents."

Anyone care to take a guess as to what movie the quote in my subject line is from? Hint: Kate Winslet is in it. Oh, and by the way, the movie got it wrong: Cary Grant wasn't from Surrey; he was from Bristol.
