C.C. Baxter is an office clerk who courts favour with the executives in his office by giving them the key to his small apartment for their extramarital flings. Among them is his callous boss, J.D. Sheldrake, who Baxter eventually learns is using his place to sleep with Miss Kubelik, the sweet elevator operator the clerk has loved from afar. When Sheldrake coldly dumps the vulnerable young woman, she tries to commit suicide in Baxter's apartment, giving the clerk the opportunity to save the woman of his dreams but possibly lose his job.

As screens go dark

Many cinemas around the world have had to close their doors during the global Covid-19 pandemic. Film festivals have been postponed and cancelled. We tip our hats to all those cinema managers and staff, and to all the festival teams playing their part in keeping audiences around the world safe and well. 

We’re here for cinemas as they reopen and for festivals as they reschedule. We want to help.
