Fact-based story about the court proceedings that followed Cincinnati art museum director Dennis Barrie after his decision to display a controversial art exhibit by photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. The proceedings start with an inflamed County Sheriff who is determined to put Barrie in jail. A grand jury established to determine whether the sexually explicit photographs were obscene found seven of the pictures to possibly be obscene. The seven pictures depicted nude children, a man ramming his fist up another man's anus, and man with his finger in his penis. Other pictures in the exhibit did depict explicit nudity and sexual connotation. An obviously biased judge made derisive decisions throughout the trial. The strain of the trial also placed Barrie's marriage under duress, which ultimately led to his wife divorcing him, and led to Barrie's children being derided and physically attacked by their classmates.

If this movie doesn't demonstrate the limits of the "Country of the Unlimited Possibilities"... I (as an European) don't know. Sex is an important subject in this country, without talking about it. A big issue - and while everybody is able to small talk for hours - the words to talk about sex are missing.
They are even don't know: is it sex or something what?
A brilliant self-analyzing movie, shows up the dilemma of the people.
