A romantic drama set in Germany just before WWI and centered on a married woman who falls in love with her husband's protégé. Separated first by duties and then by the war, they pledge their devotion to one another.
Anna and Will, were each other's first every-things: first kiss, first love, first and only relationship. Now, 10 years in, at her 30th birthday party, as he is about to propose, her brother Hale and his life partner Reece make a drunken toast, suggesting that they should sleep around before their inevitable marriage. The joke lands like a lead balloon, but the thought lingers until she proposes that they try opening their relationship--as a sexual experiment. Together, they venture out of the purely monogamous boundaries of their relationship and, along the way, evolve. Meanwhile, we also follow the relationship of the gay couple, Reece and Hale as they decide whether or not to become parents.
This was very much a collaborative project between Brooklyn and British-centric friends. Rebecca Hall and Dan Stevens were briefly classmates at Cambridge University and appearing on the British and the Brooklyn Academy of Music stage in several Shakespearean productions. Hall and Morgan Spector also shared a Broadway stage in Machinal (2014) and later married. Brian Crano has previously written and directed films with his partner, David Joseph Craig and Rebecca Hall.

I lost my virginity to this record.

My problem here is with the gay couple who had 50% of the movie. I am not homophobic but I simply didn't wish to see two gay men in bed having sex. As for the plot it was so stupid. Stevens/Hall agree to have sexual experiences with other partners which eventually destroys them. Movie was complete garbage. Hated it.
