A mar­riage tested in ‘Catch­ing Feel­ings’

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

(NO RAT­ING AVAIL­ABLE) CATCH­ING FEEL­INGS. Di­rected by: Kag­iso Lediga. Star­ring: Kag­iso Lediga, Pearl Thusi, An­drew Buck­land, Akin Omo­toso and Loyiso Gola. Show­ing at: Bay­west. MAX Mat­shane, a creative writ­ing lec­turer at Wits Univer­sity, is mar­ried to jour­nal­ist Sam Mat­shane who wants to travel the world while Max wants to start a fam­ily.

Sam feels their lives have be­come rou­tine and pre­dictable while Max is grate­ful for the con­sis­tency of their lives as a black mid­dle-class cou­ple. Life starts to change for the cou­ple when an older writer, Heiner Miller, comes to do a res­i­dency at Wits in Max’s de­part­ment.

Heiner, fa­mous for his plea­sure-seek­ing ways, wants Max to loosen up and soon ropes him into at­tend­ing al­co­hol-fu­elled late-night par­ties with him.

A health de­vel­op­ment brings Heiner into the Mat­shane house­hold, where his sybaritic ways threaten to put a strain on the cou­ple’s re­la­tion­ship.

Will Max and Sam’s mar­riage sur­vive Heiner?
