Synopsis by Jonathan Crow
Best known for writing the scores for Nick Park's Wallace & Gromit movies, Julian Nott makes his directorial debut with this low-key romantic comedy that recalls the early works of Mike Leigh. Nerdy Colin (Bill Thomas), a 50-year-old bachelor with a passion for building model planes, runs into Denise (Chrissie Cotterill) and immediately falls in love. Unfortunately, Denise is setting him up as the patsy in a complex scheme to spring her sleazy boyfriend Roy (Craig Fairbrass) from a spot of trouble. Things grow even more complicated when Denise falls for Colin and Roy sleeps with his accountant, who is in turn the lesbian lover of Denise's daughter.
