  • Three men who have led very different lives are reunited by the funeral of a mutual friend in this second feature film from writing-directing team Neil Hunter and Tom Hunsinger (BOYFRIENDS). Stuart's accidental death leads his brother-in-law, his boyfriend, and his best friend to reconsider some of the choices they have made in their lives and, in some cases, gives them the courage to try things they have never tried before. Stuart's brother-in-law, Dan (Bill Nighy), is a loyal father and a faithful husband to Judy (Ellie Haddington) who is suddenly tempted by an exotic stranger (Clementine Celarie). Following the death of his lover Stuart, restaurateur Nick (Tom Hollander) is forced to confront his emotions when he is drawn to a woman (Sukie Smith). Carefree wanderer Tim (Douglas Henshall) faces adulthood for the first time when he falls in love with a local girl (Josephine Butler). Told in three sections from the perspective of each of the three main characters, this modern romance takes a remarkable look at how delicately lives can be intertwined and how the simplest action done by one person can affect so many others.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Delightful and absorbing....The filmmakers capture some of the essential strangeness of life..."
    New York Times

    "...A small, modest feature, with a cast so perfectly in tune with one another, and a story so oddly compelling, it puts recent 'ensemble' films to shame..."
    Film Comment

    "...The characters are full-bodied and authentic, capable of surprising themselves, and their dialogue is written with a good ear for how smart people try to be truthful and secretive at the same time..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "LAWLESS HEART is a charming, disarming and in some ways humbling film....A thoughtful, funny and melancholic meditation on the notion that all hearts are lawless and out of control when under emotional stress..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...A detailed, nuanced and ultimately extremely moving portrait of a community..."
