Arrangement 92019) starts off with a character in the shadows texting – with a musical song sung by Garth Ross (My Time Is Your Time) playing in the background indistinctly. The first verse of the song sets up the story in a number of ways:
We’ve got some time
Time to do the things
We like to do
Now that you’re mine again
And you feel my touch
I know exactly what to do with you…
The main characters in Arrangement (2019) are Rex, Jessie, and Graham. Rex regularly has come to pick up his friend Jessie, and whilst waiting is texting Graham [the overnight security guard] across the parking area whilst he waits for Jessie. When Jessie arrives he says he needs to go to the bathroom’ thus really asking Jessie to wait a few minutes. So rex disappears into the bathroom, meets up with Graham, where they do the business standing up, and then Rex goes to kiss Graham, which Graham rejects out of hand.
This leads to an unexpected conversation from Graham on how he feels, and as this conversation develops they both sit down with their backs to the wall.
Grahm is like a lost soul, his marriage is betwixt and between, it is in the doldrums, and the relationship he seems to have with Rex is one of physical relief; or is it. the film ends with Rex leaving, Graham thanking Rex, and we are left wondering what will happen next time? Will there be a next time?
