The Architect

In brief: A couple, Drew & Colin, preparing to start a family, sets out to build the perfect one-of-a-kind nest, only to hire an architect with ideas of his own. Parker Posey and Eric McCormack star in this bizarrely comic tale of love, obsession, and deceit as a couple who hires a modernist architect to build their dream house, not realizing he has every intent to follow his own design—and desires. They hire Miles Moss, whose affected scarf and plummy accent peg him as the kind of pretentious architect and a walking personification of pompous elitism, who proceeds to build HIS dream house instead of theirs. An homage to every modernist landmark imaginable, Colin and Drew’s “dream home” has a certain allure. Drew becomes Moss’ muse until Moss becomes entangled in a forbidden romance with Drew, who is inexplicably seduced by the man’s self-professed creative genius.
Ramblings: Very funny but unbelievable. Expensive mistakes would never have been allowed to happen.
