An aging Hollywood star, Joe Scott, lives a life of narcissistic hedonism, observed by his laconic personal assistant, Ophelia. The death of his childhood best friend, Boots, takes our protagonist, and the movie, into an extended flashback to a sea-side town in 1970's Britain. Hollywood star Joe is now a teenage boy in a tentative relationship with a school-girl called Ruth. Further, his mother's friend, Evelyn, is attempting to seduce him. Engulfed by guilt at the unintended, tragic consequences of his subterfuge, he leaves home. The movie then switches back to contemporary Hollywood. Joe confronts his fear and returns to England for a difficult meeting with Ruth, who had gone on to marry Boots and has been a left a poor widow.Written by
In the Roxy Music "If There is Something" song scene young Joe wears a Leopard skin jacket identical to one worn by Bryan Ferry on the inside cover photo of the debut album by Roxy Music. His hair is styled like Bryan Ferry in the photo and the plush white fur carpet they lay on looks much like what the model is sprawled upon on the 1st Roxy album cover photo gate fold.. See more »

I love your nose.
Oh, thanks. I wanted to get my nose done since I was ten. It wasn't as simple as I thought. The doctors found out that I didn't have any cartilage in the tip of my nose. So then he needs to do that. Um, my nose was too long, so, I needed to shorten it. And then it was too wide so I had to thin it. And, uh, it was just a lot more complicated than I thought. My nose was just an insane amount of money.

I really loved this movie! It makes you to think and talk about it after you have seen it. Sometimes when you are so high in your life you're living,nothing is important more than yourself until something personally hits you This film tells you that you have to go down rock bottom to stop and realize your past and your mistakes you have done. And this one film tells you everything you need to know about mistakes when we are still innocent and young and in the same time even when you are young you still feel guilt of what happens around you. But it is never too late and i think everyone deserves a second chance. It took me 3 months when i decided to rent it and i said to give it a go and i really enjoyed watching it. Very Good Drama!!
