Synopsis: Philip, an American writer living in exile in London, converses with his wife and other female characters he may have dreamed up: his English mistress, who visits him regularly in the studio that serves as their refuge, a student he loved in another life, a former lover confined to a hospital in New York. Arnaud Desplechin (“Kings & Queen”) returns with a powerful, haunting story of sex, loyalty, love, and deceit. Adapted from Pulitzer Prize-winner Philip Roth’s bold autobiographical novel exploring the world of adulterous intimacy.
