Commercial opportunities in the United States are gradually drying up for Rory (Jude Law), a commodity broker, so he moves with his family to his native England with its promise of a lucrative new beginning. Could the sumptuous but secluded mansion outside London become a real home for them? And what price are they prepared to pay in order for Rory to secure his dream contract, a deal that would propel him to the highest echelons of society? This unsettling, aesthetically precise drama examines man’s inflated attitude to wealth and is significantly set in the era of the thriving economic liberalism of Reagan’s America.
