The Men's Room
An intoxicating black comedy adapted from Ann Oakley's novel about love and sexual politics.
Charity Walton seems to have everything she could want: a husband, four children, a lovely house in London, and a successful career as a sociologist.
Then she meets Mark Carleton, the incoming Head of the Sociology Department where she works: clever, handsome, and interested. Having devoted herself for years to her family, Charity finds herself surrendering to Carleton's charisma.
Their sex is frequent, passionate and sometimes violent; their feelings for each other consuming and volatile. And Charity, having abandoned all she has known, realises that love isn't guaranteed. Mark is energetically unfaithful, a serial womanizer, and the torturous disintegration of their life together is both comical and poignantly sad.
This hard-hitting five-part serial, set during the Thatcher years, launched Bill Nighy's career.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
