The Rachel Papers Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A teen sex comedy derived from the arch debut novel of author [[Performer~P1388~Martin Amis~martinamis]] by debut director [[Performer~P93501~Damian Harris~damianharris]] (son of actor [[Performer~P93538~Richard Harris~richardharris]]). [[Performer~P23893~Dexter Fletcher~dexterfletcher]] stars as Charles Highway, a 19-year-old computer nerd in London who has created a program that will allegedly guide him through the process of seducing a girl. Charles is determined to win over a beautiful, older woman before he enters Oxford University as a freshman. Then he meets 20-year-old American girl Rachel Noyce (Ione Skye), who unfortunately has a boyfriend named DeForest ([[Performer~P67051~James Spader~jamesspader]]). Since Rachel is a bit of a free-spirited swinger, however, Charles might have a chance, but her complexity dooms his ill-conceived "Master of Seduction" computer program. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
