This poly movie, which was ahead of its time, is both emotionally honest and amusing.
9 June 2003 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

When I first saw Hurt Penguins, I could hardly believe that a film could be made that expressed how I feel about myself, my sexuality, and relationships. Here is a romantic comedy that demonstrates that humans are built to be in love with more than one person, and that accepting this fact creates the possibility of heaven on earth.

Today, in the Bay Area and around the world, the poly movement has identified options for people who do not identify with the traditional monogamous relationship model. When this film was made, however, the poly movement hardly existed.

What I liked best about the film was that Harriet was able to clearly express how her love for Nick and her love for Jeremy had entirely different flavors, rhythms, and other elements, and that these differences did not compete, but complemented each other. It is an accurate portrayal of this relationship style which does not gloss over the challenges.

Unfortunately, the film only deals with the beginning of the triad's relationship. As we all know, the beginnings of relationships are only the appetizer.
