Duigan puts a new spin on romantic comedy with this witty extramarital love story set in the London theater community. Felix is a sexually frustrated, middle-aged, but otherwise successful playwright (Wilson) who sleeps with his leading lady (Newton). Rocker-turned-thespian Jon Bon Jovi surprises as Robin Grange, a cocky American actor who offers to seduce Felix's wife (Galiena) so Felix can indulge in his affair guilt-free.
