  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

This film is about the embarrassingly funny and all too familiar perils of modern urban relationships. A celebration of sex, deceit, therapy and true love.
 
The West Wittering Affair is a unique romantic- sex-comedy of errors about four confused love-hungry Londoners for whom life can never be the same after one crazy weekend away in the country.
 
From bed-swapping to sadistic revenge, the unforgetable weekend has jolting repercussions. Revelation follows revelation as the four try to sort out the mess they have made. When things spiral out of control, It is ultimately a two-year-old girl who brings them to their senses.
Both endearing and hilarious, the plot twists, turns  and fizzes along with brilliant performances from and up-and-coming British ensemble cast.
 
This life affirming story touches all the right nerves.
 
The West Wittering Affair is the debut feature from The Scheinmann Brothers. It is an astonishing and original work of instinctive story-telling which beautifully articulates the emotional coming of age of the film-makers own generation
