Englishman Rory O'Hara (Jude Law) and his American wife Allison live a middle class life in New York, with their adolescent son Ben and Allison's teenage daughter Sam (Oona Roche). Allison teaches horseback riding, while Rory is a trader. Believing his opportunities in the States are limited, Rory convinces Allison to relocate with him to England, where he plans to return to the firm of his former employer Arthur Davis (Michael Culkin). Despite Allison's initial misgivings, the family moves into a huge old mansion in Surrey. Rory convinces Allison she can start her own horse farm on the property, buying a horse named Richmond (Tornado) for her. Construction begins on a stable, while Sam and Ben are enrolled in expensive private schools. Rory takes Allison to high-class dinner parties with Arthur and his colleagues. However, the family has some difficulty adjusting, as their secluded location and respective commutes make it difficult for the kids to get to school on time.
Several weeks after they've moved in, construction abruptly stops on Allison's stable. After calling the construction crew, Allison learns Rory never paid them, as his bank account is nearly empty. Rory promises he will have money soon, but Allison is forced to provide for the family by cutting into her hidden cash fund. Their relationship is strained, with Allison beginning to bristle at Rory's efforts to appear high-class while they remain nearly broke. At the office, Rory proceeds with his scheme and proposes that Arthur sell his company to a larger American firm looking for a London office. After brief consideration, Arthur refuses. At the house, Richmond collapses in pain and Allison is forced to go to a neighboring farmer, who puts the horse down. Rory does not come home that night following Arthur's rejection. He instead travels elsewhere in England to visit his mother, telling her about his family, but she shows no interest in them and accuses Rory of abandoning her. Rory returns home late that night, and gets into an explosive argument with Allison over their financial woes and Rory's reckless, delusional behavior.
