The Man from Elysian Fields
A failed novelist's inability to pay the bills strains relations with his wife and leads him to work at an escort service where he becomes entwined with a wealthy woman whose husband is a successful writer.
Mick Jagger's finest acting performance
"A struggling author reluctantly accepts work as an escort to married women. One of his clients is the wife of an extremely successful, but very ill, novelist and he becomes very involved with them both, as he loses hold of his own marriage. There is lots to think about here; what were the various characters' motivations; was it all inevitable? I didn't see the twists in the story (although there are clues) and found that one particular storyline which had seemed unlikely made perfect sense when it finished. It's a pity about the ending, but it doesn't spoil an otherwise good film."
Encouragement for all writers--because, as we all know, most writers are confident, attractive, and secure enough in themselves to work for an escort service.
