Lawless Heart is a story of love and passion as lives are intertwined after the loss of a friend. Their friend Stuart has been lost in a boating accident, and the lives of friends Dan (Bill Nighy), Nick (Tom Hollander), and Tim (Douglas Henshall) are at an impasse. Dan, the husband of Stuart's sister Judy (Ellie Haddington) can't stop wondering if his marriage is right for him, and the seductive Corrine (ClŽmentine CŽlariŽ) may be to much for him to resist. Nick, Stuart's lover, is heartbroken, but finds himself seeking comfort with Charlie (Sukie Smith). All the while, Stuart's childhood friend Tim, staying with Nick, in enchanted by the unavailable Leah (Josephine Butler), setting him up for heartbreak.

Brilliantly acted by the ensemble cast, Lawless Heart offers a very real look at how events shape people, for better or worse. Writer/director duo Tom Hunsinger and Neil Hunter's gem is a great study of life and well worth a watch.moreless
