Unable to revive their fading sex life after many years of marriage, a therapist and her husband decide to start dating other people.
This extraordinary six-part vehicle for Toni Collette pairs the Aussie great with England’s Steven Mackintosh (known from the Underworld movies) as long-married Brits coping poorly with dwindling desire on both sides. Collette’s ironically named Joy, a psychotherapist, is recovering from an awful accident, and this initially seems incidental to her sudden demand for an open marriage. But what begins as an exceptionally witty and well edited sex farce gets deeper with each episode. Shot in and around Manchester, Coronation Street it ain’t!
