    • Synopsis
    • Yearning to be married, Fran was supposed to be on his honeymoon. Instead he’s newly single and slouching around London, entrenched in a bro-mance with his two best friends.
      At 29, Fran was sure he’d offered his fiancée everything, but she rejected his heart and his two-bedroom flat in Kentish Town, and called it all off just four weeks before their wedding. Fran is convinced that she’ll see the error of her ways... until he bumps into her with her new boyfriend and any dreams he might have had of reconciliation are dashed. He now has no choice but to move on.
      Meanwhile, his best friends Ben and Jon are suffering the opposite of Fran’s predicament: their girlfriends are mad about them, but the guys appear lukewarm about their girls.
      As best friends do, they try to dust Fran off and drag him back out into the world. But no matter whether he’s with them trawling for talent at a Rabbi’s house, being mistaken as part of a gay couple or negotiating advances from his lovelorn neighbour upstairs, Fran’s search for salvation draws him ever closer to home as he navigates the hardest two weeks of his life.
      Honeymooner stars an extraordinary British cast: Gerard Kearns (Shameless, Looking for Eric, The Mark of Cain), Daisy Haggard (Man Stroke Woman, Green Wing, Psychoville), Chris Coghill (24 Hour Party People), Al Weaver (Marie Antoinette, Me and Orson Welles) and Wunmi Mosaku (Womb, Moses Jones).
      With music by Nick Drake, Graham Coxon, and Operator Please, Honeymooner is an Austen-with-a-twist journey through love and loss - and the picking yourself back up part in-between. It’s a story for any romantic or cynic who ever thought they had love all figured out.
