He plays an essayist called Ethan who turns into an online networking star subsequent to beginning a lewd blog, which is then immediately transformed into a top of the line book with a motion picture in the pipeline.

Under the heading of Peter Dubois, Ethan and Olivia (played by Emilia Fox) are divisive and once in a while unlikeable characters yet their activities seem to be accurate and as their relationship and the story advances you build up a more noteworthy comprehension and sympathy for their flawed intentions.
When we meet Olivia she is an author apparently content with wavering on the edge of haziness. Unyielding in her feelings yet perplexed of feedback, her certainty develops as she gets to be distinctly drawn into the circle of the appealling Ethan. Emilia's delineation is consummately pitched and it stays equivocal in the matter of whether she is driven or is driving her more effective yet apparently less gifted love intrigue.
Fashioner Jonathan Fensom makes two extremely unmistakable and authentic universes, from the warm and shortsighted bounds of the country log lodge, to Olivia's cosmopolitan limits; the adjustment in landscape denote the developing many-sided quality of the two's relationship.
