The Romantics : Laura and Lila were once as close as could be - college roommates at the center of a tight-knit group of friends. But the friendship has wilted a bit. Now, ten years after college, the friends - and the boyfriend they shared - have reunited for Lila's wedding at her family's seaside estate in Maine. Laura is reserved, single, and the only Jew in the group, while the bride, Lila, is a WASP-y moneyed golden girl, and the groom, Tom, a swim team star from a working class Catholic background, is a perfect paradox of confidence and confusion. As the wedding draws near and wine flows faster, the disappointments and desires of the reuniting friends come quickly to the surface. A drunken game on the estate's dock goes awry when the revelers are pulled out to sea by the current. When they swim back to shore, they are short by one - the groom. The search throws the group's shifting allegiances into relief and results in new betrayals as well as confessions.
