"Forget The Full Monty; this is British comedy at its best. John Hurt gives this year's most charming performance." - Time Magazine
A chance encounter with struggling B-movie star Ronnie Bostock (Jason Priestly) opens up a whole new world to buttoned-up British author Giles De'Ath (John Hurt).
Going to the movies for the first time in 20 years, Giles mistakenly wanders into the wrong theater. But this seemingly incidental event launches his life on a bizarre path filled with bittersweet contrasts that ultimately leave a lasting impression.
Rolling Stones raves, "This extraordinary film walks a tightrope between humor and heartbreak," and The Los Angeles Times hails this comedy as a "sharp, sophisticated and completely delicious!" Film.
