Becca Coles is a cinema buff in her late twenties. So is Chris Paley. Becca sees herself as a femme fatale. Chris, a movie reviewer, has recently given up action films for romantic comedies and is writing a book on love in the movies. Becca is in a relationship. Chris has just finished one. They have never met. When Becca rents her flat out to Chris via an estate agent friend, everything changes. Soon she's snooping around the flat while Chris is out watching previews. She then sets up a chance romantic encounter with her unwitting tenant. But after Becca has taken to surreptitiously trailing Chris, he begins to suspect that his life has been scripted out for him, and when he starts trailing her it leads to an unexpected finale...A love story played out between two people fascinated by film, Dreaming Of Strangers explores the tension between romance and real life, examining whether it's possible to experience the fantasy life of a favourite movie, or if reality is always destined to disappoint.show more
