These stories are as rewarding as they are withholding. By showing only slices of the protagonists' lives, the audience is tasked with looking out for changes in their dynamic. It's like a game of Spot the Difference.

It's so good, in fact, you're left wishing there was more; more time, more settings, more to the story than just the simple structure these professionals excel within.

State of the Union worked because it was beautifully written by Nick Hornby, handsomely shot by Stephen Frears, and who doesn't like looking at Rosamund Pike sipping white wine?
