- Program Description
This "buddy film" features a naive prince newly arrived at Cambridge University and his worldly-wise bodyguard. Both have sex on the brain -- but only one has any experience in the subject and so turns instructor to the other. Tara Fitzgerald ("The Tenant of Wildfell Hall," "The Woman in White") and Robson Green ("Reckless") star in this eccentric mix of "Jules and Jim" and "Cyrano de Bergerac."
