Ben (O’Gorman) has sex with anybody, as long as it’s not his girlfriend. Emily (Stott) wants to be faithful, but can’t say no to her mechanic. Chlo (Elliott) only sleeps with unavailable men. Everybody is happy sleeping around until Ben stupidly falls in love. A comedy from the director of ‘Topless Women Talk’ and ‘Price of Milk’ with characters that are easy to dislike. However, worth a view. Excellent production values.
Love is a game for Ben who lies and cheats on his girlfriend Emily, with the greatest of ease. But when he meets the sexy and unpredictable Chlo, the tables are turned. Ben falls head over heels in love, and is astonished to find someone even more immoral than he is.
Rose plays young Lucy in the film. Little Lucy uses the main characters, Ben (played by Dean O’Gorman) and Chlo (played by Kate Elliott) to separate her parents. Her dad was probably a serial cheater.
