Hoping to improve his career prospects, a wage slave (Jack Lemmon) loans his flat to the company bigwigs for their illicit trysts but finds himself growing close to his boss’s lovelorn mistress (Shirley MacLaine). Billy Wilder’s tough-yet-tender comedy tells the story of two people finding each other in a world of callousness and opportunism.
