Comedy 2007 94 mins
Director: Richard Bracewell
A highly original and understated comedy set in London's male escort scene. The smooth and charming Sacha is a favourite among the wealthy but lonely over-50s (his 'regulars' played by Susannah York, Anna Massey, Sian Phillips and Angela Pleasance). When an injury puts Sacha out of action, his younger live-in valet and manager Trevor stands in, with consequences that shake up their close and dependent partnership.
From filmmaker Richard Bracewell, director of the acclaimed feature comedy from the Horrible Histories troupe, Bill.
