Alice is a fashion model living in London with an interest in acting but she is currently caught up in a complicated relationship with her boyfriend Charlie; a handsome and romantic musician but with serious drug problems. Meanwhile, their rich friends engage in a whirlwind of alcohol, drugs, partying and break-ups as they struggle to find any meaning in their wealthy, over indulgent lives. Alice finds herself breaking apart from the others with a desire for much more in the world, wishing for a future instead of a life of hedonism.
The term Lotus Eater refers to a person who would rather indulge in the luxuries of life than work or have any kind of responsibility and that's exactly what this film centres on. It's taken from the Greek myth about the inhabitants of Odyssey who fed from the lotus and subsequently lived their lives in a drugged up state. 'Lotus Eaters' has been shot in black and white to show the real dullness under the glitz and glamour of these heir and heiress lifestyles and has been directed by Alexandra McGuinness ('Paris Noir') with her co-writer Brendan Grant ('The Englishman', 'Tonight Is Cancelled'). It is set to hit the UK on March 28th 2013.
