Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Dreams of Leaving is centered around the Candide-like experiences of novice journalist Bill Nighy. He is determined to experience first-hand the social and mating habits of London's elite. Nighy gets more than he bargained for at the hands of bed-hopping socialite Kate Nelligan. Dreams of Leaving was filmed in 1979 for British television. It was picked up by America's Arts and Entertainment cable TV network, where it was shown in the fall of 1984.
