Description

At thrity five, Jane, a freelance translator, realises something rather disturbing. After fifteen years spent building the life she believed she wanted, she's failed. She thought she had everything perfectly balanced - working from home allows her to keep her financial independence, spend time with her daughter and escape office politics - but somehow, instead of combining a rewarding career with a satisfying mother-daughter relationship, she's become an all-purpose dogsbody, rushing from crisis to crisis and combining missing deadlines with repairing the dishwasher. Rupert is also leading the life he planned- a job in the city, a glamorous girlfriend, plenty of money. He is beginning to have doubts about the dull but sensible route he's chosen - and to realise it's just possible he wants more out of life. So when he and Jane meet, each escaping their day to day life with a stolen afternoon in the peace of the cinema, they both start to wonder whether it's really enough to settle for 'the next best thing'.
