Held Up Despite its Age. - The Escort review by KW

Spoiler Alert
26/06/2018

An interesting film about a french writer down on his luck and looking for inspiration who moves to London and becomes a male escort whilst at the same time collecting experiences that will in due course become part of a book he writes. Interesting to see so many British actors starting out their characters with minor roles in the film. At times it does look dated and acting standards have improved as well, but watchable.
