Love and Understanding
Overworked young doctors Neal and Rachel endure a stressful and almost sexless romance. Enter Neal's old friend Richie, an unstable and impulsive blast from the past. An arch manipulator, he quickly spots the couple’s vulnerabilities, lying, insinuating and betraying confidences until their relationship breaks down.
Blending the aggressive sexuality of Mamet with the warped naturalism of Pinter, Penhall's dark comedy is an under-performed masterpiece of tension and manipulation.
