Bright Young Things
When would-be writer Adam Fenwick-Symes (Stephen Campbell Moore) has his racy novel confiscated by customs officers, he becomes desperate to acquire enough cash to marry his fiancée Nina (Emily Mortimer). He thinks his money problems are over when he backs an outsider in a horse race, but fate conspires to keep him from his winnings for 10 years, during which time Nina resumes her friendship with her former suitor Ginger (David Tennant). Adam and Nina are part of a decadent crowd of vibrant young party goers, but as the shadow of War falls across Europe, the fun times start to falter.
