"Caine has some superb scenes....Stoppard gives it a sense of the bizarre..."
Comedy-drama about a successful novelist who invites a handsome young man to his home to provide input to his screenplay. His wife completes the romantic triangle.
When Elizabeth and Lewis Fielding's marriage shifts from perfect into boring, Elizabeth decides leave her comfortable home and travel abroad. Suddenly overcome with jealousy, Lewis imagines his wife in a myriad of sordid situations. And when Elizabeth returns to England, she starts checking up on Lewis's own indiscretions.
Into this atmosphere of tension and mistrust comes Thomas, a young German hustler, whom Elizabeth met in Baden-Baden. As a perverse experiment, Lewis decides to take Thomas on as a houseguest. But when his wife starts falling in love with the gigolo, Lewis realizes that his plans may have backfired.
