The Man from Elysian Fields (2001)

Film details


Byron Tiller is a happily married father who writes novels nobody reads. Desperate and nearly broke after rejection of his latest manuscript, Byron is approached by the elegant Luther Fox, owner and operator of Elysian Fields, a male escort service catering to wealthy, sophisticated women. Fox knows Byron's dark good looks and nimble mind will make him the perfect companion for lonely ladies, and Byron's adamant refusal soon melts into submission. Thus begins Byron's unusual double life, a high-stakes game of chance in which he must risk his marriage and his dignity in order to regain his pride.
