Description - Friends and Neighbours by Neil LaBute

"Your Friends and Neighbors" is another of Neil Labute's tales of men behaving badly towards women. His debut feature, "In the Company of Men", was described by "Variety" as "a dark, probing, truly disturbing exploration of yuppie angst and male anxieties". In "Your Friends and Neighbors", male anxiety - and misogyny towards women - is again on show, but in this case the women give as good as they get and are not merely passive victims to the men's sexual narcissism. In the end, the men do get their just deserts. LaBute has been described as the new Kubrick and he writes with an ear for the complex nuances of everyday speech.
