Jude Law gets Closer
Jude meets Clive here in the 2004 romantic drama 'Closer'
Location: 18 Southampton Place, Holborn, WC1
Description: Closer is a 2004 romantic drama film written by Patrick Marber, based on his award-winning 1997 play of the same name.
The relationships of two couples become complicated and deceitful when the man from one couple meets the woman of the other.
It stars Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts, Jude Law and Clive Owen. The film, like the play on which it is based, has been seen by some as a modern and tragic version of Mozart's opera Cosi fan tutte, with references to that opera in both the plot and the soundtrack.
And so to this location.... well...
This is where a bedraggled Dan (played by Jude Law) braves a downpour to visit Larry (Clive Owen) at his office here.
So now you know.
