Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

We think we live in a rational world... then we screw it up.

Devastated by Stuart's (David Coffey) death, his brother-in-law, lover and best friend decide to take their lives in hand. Dan (Bill Nighy) is a faithful and loving father and husband, until the day he meets Corinne (Clémentine Célarié). This buxom and sublime Frenchwoman seduces Dan with her honesty and hedonism, so much so that he wonders if he hasn't missed out on life. Nick (Tom Hollander), a gay restaurant owner, begins a relationship with a high-spirited young woman right after losing his lover, Stuart. When their apparently innocent relationship takes a more intimate turn, Nick is troubled by his feelings for his female comrade. Tim (Douglas Henshall), carefree and charismatic, comes home after eight years abroad. Still looking for that "elusive something" that has been missing in his life, Tim finds it in a woman who works in a fashion boutique. But confronted with his future for the first time, the only thing that stands in the way is this unknown woman's past.
