R, 101 min. Directed by Philip Saville. Starring Lee Ross, Christian Bale.

Not reviewed at press time. Christian Bale (Velvet Goldmine) and Lee Ross (Secrets & Lies) star in the story of two London friends in the mid-Sixties who thumb their noses at the establishment and then go their separate ways. Years later they reunite and question the lifestyle choices and compromises they have made, one continuing his globe-trotting adventures and the other having settled down into a middle-class, suburban job and marriage.
