What's supposed to be a drama with a satirical edge comes across as a mean-spirited dissection of a wealthy upper-middle class British family. The plot revolves around an ambitious London lawyer and his uptight wife, a meddling investigative journalist and the gay godfather to the couple's dysfunctional eight-year-old son. The admittedly fine ensemble cast is largely wasted playing characters that are unsympathetic, and as a result the film completely fails to engage.
