Carter Page III (Woody Harrelson) is a society “walker”, whose job entails squiring the wives of the rich and powerful to events their husbands could not accompany them to. When one of his friends, Lynn (Kristin Scott Thomas), wife of a liberal senator finds her lover murdered, he agrees to say he found the body to save her and her husband political embarrassment. Soon Carter is caught in a web of Washington intrigue and mixed motives and the people he considered friends are deserting him one by one.
A chance for us to work with a real legend of film, Paul Schrader on this very cool film with a stellar cast! This was all about great dialogues from some fantastic actors, with a flavour of Washington society weaved in for good measure.
