Simon and Pam were once a golden couple but two small children, two cracked nipples and one waning libido has snuffed out their fire. Simon is enormously flattered when another woman focuses her attention on him but will he take it any further? Or will Simon find that some men are not wired for adultery, that some men are just too nice?
Outrageously funny one moment, deeply moving the next, this romantic comedy is a tale about a group of friends and their marriages, about good and bad sex, about falling out of love for the first time and learning the painful lesson that unrequited love is something that lasts forever - while requited love can be punishingly finite.
Separation City is a comedy-drama about the complications that ensue as two marriages collapse. Men's groups and midlife crises in contemporary Wellington make up the world in which the multi-national cast explores, in screenwriter Tom Scott's words, "biology and human nature". This feature marks the first solo film script by political cartoonist Scott, who honed his writing skills on a run of TV projects during the two-decade journey to bring the film to the screen. Successful commercials director, Australian-based Kiwi Paul Middleditch, directs.
