Hide and Seek
Original title: Hide and Seek
A film by Joanna Coates
In an isolated English cottage, four young people from London move in together, seeking to challenge social conventions and their own tolerances by engaging in scheduled partnerswapping. As their inhibitions and past traumas fade, they achieve a unique kind of collective happiness but the durability of their new living arrangement is tested by the arrival of an outsider, who fails to get in tune with the foursome's radical spirit.
