Leap Year attests to Mr. Cameron’s blossoming satiric gifts and his instinctive feeling for the confusions of a generation.” —The New York Times
As the curtain falls on the vibrant, gritty New York of the 1980s, just-divorced David and Loren Parish watch their  lives  come apart—but not before one last year of self-absorbed fun. Even with their daughter Kate mistakenly kidnapped, an absurd murder  in a SoHo gallery, and friends suffering from the full spectrum of yuppie maladies, David and Loren are determined to  make some sense of their messy and complicated lives.  Loren  moves in with TV producer Gregory while David  begins dating   a passionate young artist Heath; meanwhile, the two find themselves spending more time with each other than they ever did before their separation. Leap Year is at once a rapier-sharp satire of a  turbulent decade and an infectious celebration of a city brimming with infinite possibilities.
