Everything Could Be So Perfect
To tear out from your eyes I won’t speak of forbidden lies, I'll keep watching as you leave me further behind.
A middle-aged author of elite fiction watches a film adaptation of his first book and is immediately enraptured by the young actor in the leading role. Captivated and, increasingly, consumed: he discovers more about the person, his life, finds old photographs, kisses them – and more. Eventually, his mania takes him to a meeting and a pathetically awful denouement. Everything Could Be So Perfect is an engaging study of an obsession bordering on madness.
