A delirious comedic romp through the favelas and high-end plastic surgery clinics of Rio de Janeiro, Rio Sex Comedy charts the misadventures of expatriates in their bungled search for personal pleasures and social justice. Charlotte Rampling is a mischevious English plastic surgeon determined to discourage anyone from going under the knife. Irène Jacob is a French anthropologist whose political correctness is upstaged by more carnal ambitions. Bill Pullman is a befuddled American ambassador who flees from his responsibilities into one of Rio’s most dangerous favelas where he becomes co-opted by the schemes of Fisher Stevens, favela tour operator and romantic huckster.
