Hard To Swallow

UK, 2006 (MIFF 2007)

Director: Matt Kirkby

Hard To Swallow

Three thirty-something couples gather for a luncheon that has all the ingredients to be a recipe for disaster. Relationships are tested, multiple surprises are revealed and souls are laid bare. A delightful romp that will have you in stitches. It's almost too much to bear!
