British helmer Stephen Poliakoff, the man responsible for 2003's acclaimed The Lost Prince about a young British monarch whom the regents locked away to hide his epileptic fits, returns with the feature Friends and Crocodiles, starring Damian Lewis An Unfinished Life, Jodhi May The House of Mirth, and Robert Lindsay Bert Rigby, You're a Fool. The film opens in the early '80s, with Lewis as Paul Reynolds, a slightly indulgent succès d'estime in the business world who presides over a mansion full of hyper-eccentric artistes. Reynolds hires a secretary, Lizzie May, to manage his affairs and keep his houseguests in reasonable order. The drama then traces the emotional landscape of Paul and Lizzie's employer/employee relationship their ups and downs over the following two decades, which myopically reflect the changes in the larger British corporate landscape.
