Buff and beautiful teenager Jim (Harris Dickinson, Beach Rats) moves from the London suburbs to Soho where he falls in with a gang of unusual high-class male escorts – The Raconteurs – who specialize in intelligent post-coital conversation. From shy novice to sought after escort and eventually artist’s muse, Jim would be the toast of the town if it wasn’t for his annoying affliction – Stendhal Syndrome – a rare condition which causes him to hallucinate and faint. When Jim is roped into the world of detecting art forgery, could his condition bring about his downfall?

This film takes you on a bizarre but interestingly fun ride that involves art and different time periods, told in a way that both intrigues and excites...And the guys are all quite nice to look at.
