One Night Stand
Filmfest 2006

Mike Figgis’ morality play about casual sex in the age of AIDS. Max Carlyle travels to see his old friend Charlie in New York and winds up in an act of infidelity with a beautiful stranger named Karen. Max’s one night stand is not a source of fear or guilt, but rather a crisis that leads him to question the life he’s built and is so easily convinced to betray. That life, as a family man and director of shallow commercials in Los Angeles, is best embodied in his demanding wife Mimi, a Hollywood socialite who only connects with her husband on apparently superficial levels.
