On Manhattan’s gilded Upper East Side a young painter, Charlie, finds the man of his dreams in an older pianist from Europe. However, Charlie is secretly in love with his own manipulative best friend Sebastian. Embroiled in a financial scandal Sebastian and his Upper East Side brat pack try to deal with the realities of adulthood.

This unrequited gay love story is beautifully filmed with a storyline similar to our own Brideshead Revisited – is it by chance that the most troubled character is called Sebastian?
