Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson star in this powerful fusion of poetry and drama. Based on Christopher Reid's narrative poem, The Song of Lunch follows the story of a book editor who, 15 years after their break-up, is meeting his former love for a nostalgic lunch. The woman is now living a glamorous life in Paris, married to a world-renowned writer. Meanwhile, the unnamed editor has failed in his writing career, detests his publishing job and regrets the end of their love affair.
