Room to Rent synopsis

In London, Egyptian student Ali (Said Taghmaoui) holds several jobs while aspiring to be a successful screenwriter. But, kicked out of his rooming house, short on funds and with an expiring visa, Ali needs a place to stay, some quick cash and a British woman to marry him. He meets Mark (Rupert Graves), a photographer of gay erotica; Linda (Juliette Lewis), a professional Marilyn Monroe impersonator; and Sarah (Anna Massey), a blind woman who thinks Ali is her reincarnated soul mate.
