Based on the Tim Sandlin novel, Sex & Sunsets, The Right Kind of Wrong tells the story of Leo Palamino (Ryan Kwanten), a failed writer-cum-dishwasher made famous for his many flaws and shortcomings in a blog called “Why You Suck” written by his ex-wife, Julie. Then one afternoon, as a dejected Leo watches Julie being interviewed on a talk show about her upcoming book, he spots the woman of his (impossible) dreams on her way into a wedding right across the street from his house. Her name is Colette and the wedding is her wedding. No matter. Convinced Colette is his soul mate, Leo goes on the `unconventional tours` that she leads in the scenic town of Mount Yalo and doggedly observes her secret daily rituals. He invites her anonymously to witness him in action in his job as a dishwasher “with themes.” In the process he discovers that Colette is an outsider, like himself, with a wicked sense of humour and a passion for speaking her mind. In Leo`s war to win Colette`s heart, he gets beat up by kids, loses his home, his job, and (temporarily) his cat. But Leo`s enduring charm resides in his complete lack of cynicism, and utter faith in a love that everyone else thinks is impossible.
