The Song of Lunch

MASTERPIECE CONTEMPORARY "The Song of Lunch"
Airs Thursday, March 28 at 9:00 PM

When a middling copy editor/failed poet meets his former lover for lunch 15 years after their affair, he finds that everything -- and nothing -- has changed. From the tablecloths to the wine to his former lover, wealth and success now gloss the surface where kitsch and passion once held sway. He is bitter, petulant and increasingly inebriated; she is glamorous, generous, and eventually provoked. A dramatization of Christopher Reid's acclaimed narrative poem, The Song of Lunch stars Alan Rickman (Harry Potter films) and Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility, film version) in the unnamed roles of He and She. Waiter, I'll take the nostalgia special with a side of recrimination and finish with regret, for a lunch that celebrates love and ambition with poignancy, humor, and affection.
