A romantic comedy with songs, about two of life’s undateables.
When Mari, who is other worldly and has a disarmingly blunt manner, finds out that San, the geeky guy at the local newsagents, is having an arranged marriage she decides she wants an arranged boyfriend.
Mari’s pin-up is a sexy, dark-haired catalogue model that she calls Clive and she wants her new boyfriend to be just like him. So San helps Mari sign up to a dating app with the profile: Catalogue model required – must be called Clive.
Shirley Henderson (Stan and Ollie, Bridget Jones Diary, Harry Potter) and Roger Allam (The Hippopotamus, Tamara Drewe, The Thick of It) are on board for a shoot in 2019 with Melissa Parmenter of Revolution Films producing.
