Love in all the wrong places

‘Copenhagen’ just a diversion

By Michael J. Casey
William (Gethin Anthony) is 28, loud, abrasive and generally unpleasant to be around. He yells, swears, leers, drinks too much and thinks too little. He is your typical obnoxious American abroad, both to the fine people of Demark and to his two traveling companions.
