Hornby explores the complexities of marriage with his inimitable honesty and humour.

Gary Marenzi, Head of Entertainment Sales and Partnerships for Endeavor Content said: "Nick Hornby's sharp and witty script is complemented by Stephen Frears' intelligent direction and Rosamund and Chris shine in their performances as a married couple in crisis. We are delighted to be partnering with See-Saw Films once again in presenting buyers with a comedic look into the universal story of marital bliss and misery."
