Inspired by the remarkable true story of one of the world’s first medical trials for the Viagra, new film Men Up is a poignant and beautiful story in which a group of unassuming men rise to the challenge to reclaim their sex lives.
In this fictionalised account, Men Up follows Meurig , Colin, Tommy, Peetham ‘Pete’ and Eddie in pursuit of their ultimate reward… the return of a romantic connection in their lives.
But as the drug brings the hope of a return to that once-lost intimacy, the men realise the hard work has only just begun. The trial will take them to some very unexpected places and force them to re-assess their lives.
Watch L&C’s wonderful Alexandria Riley as Alys Shah in ‘Men Up’ on Friday 29 December on BBC1 and BBC iPlayer.
