After the death of a common friend, three married men leave their lives together, seeking pleasure and freedom and ultimately leaving for London.

The Len Lye Centre presents a retrospective of 4 films from John Cassavetes, pioneer of independent American Film across each Thursday in June.

The quiet, simple family lives of Gus, Harry and Archie are shattered when their best friend, Stuart, has a heart attack and dies suddenly. Now facing their mortality, the three men fall into their own midlife crises. First by spending their days playing basketball and nights drinking, and eventually by ditching their families altogether for a sudden getaway to London, where they face the temptation to cheat on their wives for the first time.

US, 1970, 142 min., Dir. John Cassavetes
