Michaelmas Week 2
Life x 3 is a sharply comic dissection of modern marriage. A quiet night in in Paris quickly degenerates for astronomer Henri and his wife Sonia. Not only is their six year old son refusing to go to sleep until he’s eaten his way to diabetes, but now Henri’s boss and highly strung trophy wife Ines have arrived a day early for the most important dinner party of Henri’s career. Off-guard, unprepared and facing a dinner of Wotsits, conversation goes from polite to terse to worse as family, work and life are all placed under the microscope, exacerbated by the bottles of Sancerre and philosophies of child-care. Brittle, biting and brutally funny, Life x 3 is a close-up of how one glib comment or one word unsaid can change your life, three times over.
