The Leisure Class is the end product of the current season of HBO’s Project Greenlight, which takes a revealing, uncensored look at the challenges facing a first-time director. The film revolves around William, a debonair Englishman celebrating his engagement to Fiona, the daughter of a U.S. senator and prominent East Coast family. But William is a con man, and he intends to embezzle funds from the senator’s charitable organization. On the eve of the wedding, the sudden arrival of William’s estranged brother threatens to expose William’s true identity and the disturbing, long-hidden truths about Fiona’s family. Discussion with director Jason Mann and producer Perrin Chiles
