Based on Nick Hornby’s bestseller Juliet, Naked is a moving, funny account of love, loneliness, and life’s unexpected turns…
After 15 years with Duncan, Annie’s finally realizing Duncan’s flame only seems to burn for Tucker Crowe, his rock idol who quit music 20years ago and hasn’t surfaced since.
When an unpublished demo of Tucker’s most famous album, now called “Juliet, Naked”, lands on their doorstep, Annie and Duncan are divided. He loves it, she doesn’t. After writing a scathing review of the album online, Annie is surprised that Tucker not only replies to her review, but actually agrees, and the two of them strike up a relationship that extends far beyond “Juliet, Naked.”
This online escape for two strangely connected souls suddenly becomes real when Tucker arrives in England with his 6 year old son, Jackson, the only one of his many children that actually lives with him, and Annie finds herself drawn to him despite his shambolic ways. Annie is torn between the life she knows and taking a risk on this captivating former rock star. If only Tucker can bring Annie into his life, to make order of the chaos, he knows he can become the man he’d love to be.
Hilarious and poignant, Juliet, Naked will move you in ways both profound and surprising.
