Swinging with the Finkels. Swinging with the Finkels tells the story of Alvin and Ellie Finkel played by British comedy favourite Martin Freeman (The Office, soon to be seen in the title role as The Hobbit) and US film, music and TV star Mandy Moore (License to Wed, Tangled), a couple living in London at breaking point in their relationship. As two young students, Alvin and Ellie met at university and fell in love. Ten years later they are now married with successful careers and very little time for eachother. They are getting dangerously close to falling out of love…

As the marriage of their closest friends Peter and Janet played by US comedy star Jonathan Silverman (Weekend at Bernie’s) and Australian actress Melissa George (30 Days of Night), hits the rocks after Peter embarks on a steamy affair, the Finkels are encouraged to analyse their relationship and decide whether they have a marriage worth saving. Do they stay together and continue with their increasingly stale relationship, or should they attempt to relight the flame that they are both missing? Would sex toys be the answer? Will dressing up and role play help spice things up? Or should they indulge in the ultimate marriage scruple of wife swapping? Alvin and Ellie are about to discover whether swinging is the answer to their marital problems…

Featuring an unforgettably “cheeky” appearance by TV personality Angus Deayton as he has never been seen before, and also starring British comedy star Daisy Beaumont (Star Stories), US comedy legend Jerry Stiller (Zoolander) and Pineapple Dance Studios’ Louis Spence, Swinging with The Finkels is directed by Jonathan Newman, creator of the original short film “Sex with the Finkels” and produced by Deepak Nayar (Bend it Like Beckham).

Swinging with the Finkels will be released in cinemas on 17th June 2011 by Uno Films
