Metroland | 1999
Chris and Toni grew up togther on the outskirts of London in the early 60's, fueled with the desire to escape the suburban sprawl at the end of London Underground Metropolitan Line referred to as "Metroland." By the late 60's, Chris and Toni part, each in search of romance and adventure. Chris heads to Paris where he embarks on a tempertuous affair with a Frenchwoman while pursuing La Vie Boheme and a life as a photographer. Then, he meets Marion, a young English girl for whom he turns his life qround--returning to London and the suburban life he once resisted. Meanwhile, Toni's life follows an entirely different path: After spending time in Africa, he continues to travel the world, jumping from one adventure to the next. Eventually he returns to London, reconnecting with Chris and instantly forcing his old friend to reconsider his choices and question his middle-class life in Metroland.
