Things Being What They Are

As Bill anxiously waits for his unfaithful wife and his furniture, he is visited by Jack, a divorced neighbor who suggests the loneliness of life after marriage. At first Jack appears to be a nightmare neighbor—intrusive, needy, boorish—but gradually Bill's perception of his new "friend" deepens. While it's true that Jack managed to lose his wife's trust and his children's love, Bill discovers that Jack is wrestling with circumstances that would challenge the best of us. Wendy MacLeod's funny and wistful exploration of love, loss, masculinity, and the needs that bring people together and drive them apart.
