THE CABIN MOVIE is a darkly comic look at the nature of desire, the challenge of monogamy, and the definition of sexuality when a group of friends travel to a secluded cabin in an attempt to revitalize their lives through bizarre games of sexual dysfunction. Katherine, an unemployed housewife who hasn't had sex in a year is intent on getting some with or without her repressed husband Mark's involvement. Jason, a happy-go-lucky cool guy, has shown up without his long-term girlfriend, but with Ginny, a bisexual party girl he met the previous weekend. Ken and Maria, a stable common-law couple, are caught in the middle somewhere between discovery and sexual panic as they try to keep things on track while wrestling with issues of their own. By the end of the night, all their relationships will be called into question and pushed to the breaking point. Written by
Recently, I saw The Cabin Movie at the Vancouver Film Festival. The film directed by Dylan Smith features three couples in search of exciting sexual encounters in a cabin north of the Vancouver. What impressed me so much about this film was the restraint showed by the director in dealing with this very sensitive subject. There is something inherently funny about a film chronicling three couples experimenting with sex with friends, yet the director cleverly plays it straight. He avoids easy punch-lines and instead teases the comedy from the circumstance. Arranging a sex weekend with a group of friends is more complicated than one can imagine. This is not robotic sex with strangers and the characters recognize the inherent dangers. These are three well- defined couples each with a suitcase full of relationship issues. The script is tightly written and the acting is strong. In an era of sexual adventure among couples, this is a timely story. It presents the dilemmas of free sex without moralizing. It was one of my picks of the festival and judging by the reaction of the audience, I think this film could become a sleeper hit in the video rental houses.
