Luc, a young architect in his mid-30s, has a perfect life: he is brilliant at his job, he has a house in a breath-takingly beautiful part of Québec, an attractive wife and he spends his free time with friends, playing golf, tennis, skiing or hunting. Then at a business meeting in Toronto he meets the mysterious Lindsay and spends the night with her. Suddenly, his fantastic life is askew. An Eye for Beauty is a drama about beauty and superficiality. A brilliantly made portrait of perfection, the cracks therein and the emptiness beyond.
