A Mumbai teen who grew up in the slums, becomes a contestant on the Indian version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" He is arrested under suspicion of cheating, and while being interrogated, events from his life history are shown which explain why he knows the answers.
The story follows a married couple, apart for a night while the husband takes a business trip with a colleague to whom he's attracted. While he's resisting temptation, his wife encounters her past love.
Evan keeps to himself, almost without affect. He's 30, a former foster child, living alone, writing suicide notes for people. He attends a client's funeral and meets Charlotte, the client's sister. She pursues Evan; he's silent about his real work and invents a friendship with the brother. About the same time, Evan starts working with Abel, a new client, a composer of phone-waiting music who's depressed. Evan confides in Abel about Charlotte as she begins to draw him out. Crises await the self-contained Evan: his relationship with Charlotte is based on a lie, and his incipient friendship with Abel is headed toward suicide. Are more dead ends ahead? Written by
While driving on the freeway with Evan, Charlotte has her hands on the steering wheel which is at a 90 degree turn to the left. She would not be going straight with the wheel like that. You can see that her hands are placed correctly, but with the wheel like that, they would be driving in a circle. See more »
Where were you born?
I've never been there; is it nice?
I don't remember; I was zero at the time.
Alright, look. I... I don't really... date much.
And you're doing great. So far, since we've been here, you haven't scoped out any other chicks, or stolen my credit card. Which is a lot more than I can say for my last date. So, in my book, you're aces.

at first sigh, the Wes Bentley return. with small observation - it is not really a new American Beauty. it is bitter, sarcastic, a kind of dark chocolate. a part of long chain about strange men and nice girls, secrets and fundamental choices but all are only details.because it is a fresco not for a love story but for life love. a different writer and his clients. a meeting and a relationship. and old story, with cinnamon traces, about she and him. I love it. for its aura, for the levels of story for Wes Bentley in his perfect character clothes, for Winnona Ryder and her work to be decent Charlotte.like many films of present,a movie about nothing or only about insignificant events.
