Full Plot

Chris Wilton is a former tennis pro, looking to find work as an instructor. He meets Tom Hewett, a well-off pretty boy. Tom's sister Chloe falls in love with Chris but Chris has his eyes on Tom's fiancée, the luscious Nola. Both Chris and Nola know it's wrong but what could be more right than love? Chris tries to juggle both women but at some point, he must choose between them... Anonymous Tennis pro Chris Wilton takes a job as a tennis instructor and hits it off immediately with one of his students, wealthy young Tom Hewitt. Tom introduces Chris to his family and Chris falls quickly into a romance with Tom's sister Chloe. But despite the growing certainty that Chris and Chloe will marry, and the enormous professional and financial advantages that come Chris's way through his relationship with the delighted Hewitt family, Chris becomes increasingly intrigued and eventually romantically involved with Tom's fiancée, Nola Rice, a struggling American actress. Their passionate trysts leave Chris in danger of losing the wealth and position he has now come to enjoy. The only solution to the dilemma seems unthinkable... Jim Beaver The Irish former professional player Chris Wilton from the lower class gets a job as tennis instructor in an upper class club in London. Chris becomes close to his student Tom Hewett, who introduces him to his British upper class family, and Tom's sister Chloe immediately falls in love with him. The ambitious Chris keeps the relationship with Chloe, feeling lust for Tom's fiancée, the American aspirant actress Nola Rice, and they have a brief affair. Chris gets married to Chloe and climbs to a high position in a company of the Hewett's family, while Tom breaks his engagement with Nola. When Chris meets Nola by chance, he becomes obsessed for her and she becomes his mistress. When Nola gets pregnant and presses him, he balances the financial advantages of his marriage but he has to take a decision in his life and choose the woman he wants for his companion. Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil After a B-career in international pro tennis, Irish-commoner-roots player Chris Wilton takes a step-stone job as country club instructor. Thus he befriends gifted pupil Tom, who takes him to the Hewetts' splendid country estate as a family friend, sharing a love for opera. Tom's sister Chloe becomes his bride, so dad Alec arranges a generous job in the family's London City firm. Tom's former fiancée, American B-actress Nola, nevertheless becomes his mistress. When she gets accidentally pregnant, Chris fails to get an abortion and resorts to a desperately radically way out. KGF Vissers Plot not found

Nola Rice: [from trailer] I don't think this is a good idea. You shouldn't have followed me here. Christopher "Chris" Wilton: Do you feel guilty? Nola Rice: Do you? [they kiss] Nola Rice: He saw me across the room and he homed in on me like a guided missile. Alec Hewett: Eleanor, I think you have had one too many G and T's. Nola Rice: Men always seem to wonder. They think I'd be something very special. Christopher "Chris" Wilton: And are you? Nola Rice: Well, no one's ever asked for their money back. [first lines] Christopher "Chris" Wilton: The man who said "I'd rather be lucky than good" saw deeply into life. People are afraid to face how great a part of life is dependent on luck. It's scary to think so much is out of one's control. There are moments in a match when the ball hits the top of the net, and for a split second, it can either go forward or fall back. With a little luck, it goes forward, and you win. Or maybe it doesn't, and you lose. Christopher "Chris" Wilton: It would be fitting if I were apprehended... and punished. At least there would be some small sign of justice - some small measure of hope for the possibility of meaning. Christopher "Chris" Wilton: Sophocles said, "To never have been born may be the greatest boon of all." Christopher "Chris" Wilton: So tell me, what's a beautiful young American ping-pong player doing mingling among the British upper class? Nola Rice: Did anyone ever tell you you play a very aggressive game? Christopher "Chris" Wilton: Did anyone ever tell you you have very sensual lips? Nola Rice: Extremely aggressive. Christopher "Chris" Wilton: I'm naturally competitive. [last lines] Alec Hewett: To Terrance. Eleanor Hewett, Chloe Hewett Wilton, Heather: To Terrance. Alec Hewett: And all that sail on him. Christopher "Chris" Wilton: You have to learn to push the guilt under the rug and move on, otherwise it overwhelms you. Chloe Hewett Wilton: Was I dreadful? Christopher "Chris" Wilton: No, not at all, you have very unique style. Chloe Hewett Wilton: Yeah, it's called clumsy! Nola Rice: I want an Aston Martin or one of those vintage convertible Mercedes. Tom Hewett: When we're married, we'll collect vintage cars. Just as long as I can have a DB9 with all the trim. Christopher "Chris" Wilton: I drove an Aston Martin once. Tom Hewett: Really? Christopher "Chris" Wilton: [standing on the ledge on his new flat] Did I tell you, I'm scared of heights? Chloe Hewett Wilton: Really? Christopher "Chris" Wilton: Yeah Chloe Hewett Wilton: Well that could become a problem Detective Banner: [Holds up Nola's diary] have you seen this before? Christopher "Chris" Wilton: No [takes the diary and starts reading it] Detective Banner: Were you aware that Nola Rice kept a diary? Christopher "Chris" Wilton: [looks up after a few moments with a defeated looking expression on his face] no Detective Banner: Do you still claim that the last time you saw Nola Rice was at the Tate Modem over a year ago? Christopher "Chris" Wilton: I couldn't stand the whole tour thing. Christopher "Chris" Wilton: look, you can't blame me for trying to hide the fact that I had an affair with her. I know that it's not the most honorable thing to cheat on your wife, but that does not make me a murderer Christopher "Chris" Wilton: Roast chicken Christopher "Chris" Wilton: Sh! Nola! Calm down! Calm the fuck down! Estate Agent: That's your sofa, which also doubles up as a bed, which is great, you know, cause you can be watching some telly and you ain't got to hassle having to get outta the bedroom, you can just open it up, get your kip. Kitchen just through there, all your amenities, fixtures, fittings, washer, dryer, all that stuff. Lovely view, not overlooked. So, ah, it's all good. Christopher "Chris" Wilton: This is two hundred and twenty five a week? Estate Agent: Well it's London, mate. Bang, mate. You know? You don't like it, move to Leeds, do ya know what I mean? You got a wok? You got a wok? It's one of those oriental, sort of conical pans? The geezer who was in here before, he left one in there. You're welcome to it. I'll throw that in. Christopher "Chris" Wilton: I'll take it. Chloe Hewett Wilton: Chris's Dad was a bit of a religious fanatic. Christopher "Chris" Wilton: After he lost both his legs, he found Jesus. Tom Hewett: God... Sorry, but it just doesn't seem like a fair trade. Christopher "Chris" Wilton: [He stands on the window sill of his future flat and looks down] Have I told you I'm afraid of heights? Chloe Hewett Wilton: Really? Christopher "Chris" Wilton: Yeah. Chloe Hewett Wilton: That could be a problem [Chris sniggers]

- 'Woody Allen' (qv)'s first film shot entirely in Britain.

- At 124 minutes, 'Woody Allen' (qv)'s longest film to date.

- Because it was filmed in Britain, 'Woody Allen' (qv) had to have a certain percentage of British cast and crew. Apparently he made his quota before casting 'Kate Winslet' (qv). After she backed out to spend more time with her family, Allen cast American 'Scarlett Johansson' (qv).

- The film was shown out of competition at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival.

- The painting of a girl with a red balloon on the wall that Chris walks along was done by Banksy, a graffiti artist from Bristol.

- Originally set in the Hamptons.

- The musical they see midway through the movie is 'Andrew Lloyd Webber' (qv)'s "The Woman In White".

- 'Woody Allen' (qv)'s first film in 19 years to make a profit in America. The last was _Hannah and Her Sisters (1986)_ (qv).

- The haunting recording used several times in the soundtrack, including over the opening and closing credits, is the 'Enrico Caruso (I)' (qv) 78 rpm of "Una furtiva lagrima" ("A furtive tear"), from 'Gaetano Donizetti' (qv)'s opera "L'Elisir d'Amore" ("The Elixir of Love").

- SPOILER: Chris is shown reading
