Battle of the sexes as Steve Buscemi's political reporter locks horns with Sienna Miller's soap-queen. After incurring the wrath of his editor, steely political scribe Pierre Peders (Buscemi) is forced to accept an assignment to interview hot tabloid actress Katya (Miller). Meeting up in a swanky New York restaurant, things go from bad to worse when Pierre takes an instant dislike to the actress. On leaving the restaurant, he somehow manages to injure himself, but is rescued when Katya convinces him to go back to her apartment. After some obligatory drink and drugs, the pair embark on a psychological sparring match, uncovering each others weak spots, and generally enjoying the thrill of the chase.
