AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In this witty, sexy and occasionally very rude short comedy, Louis is a wannabe rock star singing for his supper as a hose-wearing restaurant minstrel, and his best friend Elle is a feminist filmmaker working in a primary school. Louis' girlfriend has left him and he wants to mourn alone, but Elle's having a bad day and wants company for the pub. A simple conflict in plans for the evening escalates into a conflagration of gender-war proportions when the romantic Louis and the cynical Elle battle over the politics, posturing and double standards of heterosexual relationships in the 21st century.
