“A romantic comedy about the fine art of thievery.”
Jake & Tina (Malkovich and MacDowell) are a sexy, jet-setting couple, madly in love and living far beyond their means in a posh London hotel.

BOOK DESCRIPTION:From acclaimed director, Michael Lindsay-Hogg (The Normal Heart, The Beatles’ Let It Be, Brideshead Revisted) and son of movie star Geraldine Fitzgerald (Dark Victory, Wuthering Heights) who lived with Orson Welles for a time, the book is a magical dreamscape memoir of his boyhood coming-of-age story and making his way in the worlds of theatre, film and television and encountering the likes of William Randolph Hearst, Humphrey Bogart, Henry Miller and Welles who was a consistently inconsistent person in his life.
When Michael was 16, his mother made an off-handed comment, “… people think Orson (Welles) and I had an affair and that he’s your father … but you know how people can put two & twotogether…”
Over time the story changed and shifted – his life becomes altered by uncertainty until he learns the truth.
