Description

“Anyone who’s seen SHORTBUS has experienced something special, a movie as outrageously funny as BORAT and as privately, emotionally transparent as some diary entries….his movie is not revolutionary simply because it’s the first to depict real sex in a life-size emotional context. It’s that it dares to celebrate its dysfunctional heteros, homos, and uncategorizables as equal in eyes of love.”

— Wesley Morris, Boston Globe

John Cameron Mitchell’s SHORTBUS explores the lives of several emotionally challenged characters as they navigate the comic and tragic intersections between love and sex in and around a modern-day underground salon. A sex therapist who has never had an orgasm, a dominatrix who is unable to connect, a gay couple who are deciding whether to open up their relationship, and the people who weave in and out of their lives, all converge on a weekly gathering called Shortbus: a mad nexus of art, music, politics, and polysexual carnality. Set in a post-9/11, Bush-exhausted New York City, SHORTBUS tells its story with sexual frankness, suggesting new ways to reconcile questions of the mind, pleasures of the flesh, and imperatives of the heart.
