The Screen Guide

Sydney. Summer. Out-of-work actor Fred Thatcher goes to work at a stuffy corporate law firm as a temporary secretary. His assignment: Leslie Barratt, a stressed-out female associate on the partner track – and they instantly despise each other. Fred throws Leslie’s carefully ordered but very dull life into complete turmoil and Leslie just can’t stop behaving like a lawyer. Over the next few weeks Fred forces Leslie to examine what she really wants out of life. LOVE IN THE FIRST DEGREE is a funny heartwarming story about falling in love and not settling for second best.
