In this reverse love story set in Paris and London, a failed
monogamist attempts to woo his wife back and to answer the question: is it
really possible to fall back in love with your spouse?
Despite the success of his first solo show in Paris and the
support of his brilliant French wife and young daughter, thirty-four-year-old
British artist Richard Haddon is too busy mourning the loss of his American
mistress to a famous cutlery designer to appreciate his fortune.
But after Richard discovers that a painting he originally
made for his wife, Anne—when they were first married and deeply in love—has
sold, it shocks him back to reality and he resolves to reinvest wholeheartedly
in his family life … just in time for his wife to learn the extent of his
affair. Rudderless and remorseful, Richard embarks on a series of misguided
attempts to win Anne back while focusing his creative energy on a provocative
art piece to prove that he’s still the man she once loved.
Skillfully balancing biting wit with a deep emotional
undercurrent, this “charming and engrossing portrait of one man’s midlife mess”
(Elle) creates the perfect portrait
of an imperfect family—and a heartfelt exploration of marriage, love, and
fidelity. Download and start listening now!
