Playing House

Playing House This is a story of Frannie (Joanne Kelly) and Calvin (Lucas Bryant), a pair of early thirty-somethings living in Manhattan.

They have been casually dating for a couple of months when Franni discovers that she is pregnant. For reasons they will at first resist, and then embrace, they end up in Toronto, Frannie's childhood home, and the two of them fall into a grudging domesticity.

Neither of them has a clue how to cook, keep house, or raise a child, and Calvin — being an experimental jazz musician — has never even had a steady nine-to-five job.

Things become complicated for Frannie when the irresistable Michael (Colin Ferguson) appears, offering her glamour, intellectual stimulation, and a chance to return to her old life as an editor for a famour literary magazine back in New York.

In the end, Frannie realises that true love is deeper than a glamorous romance — it's a shared sense of home and family, humour and vulnerability, something that only Calvin can offer her.
