Storyline

An impulsive sexual encounter from her past haunts Amy, an otherwise seemingly normal young woman with a bright future and nice-guy fiancé. But her fiancé has suggested that the couple be completely honest and tell each other everything! When Amy finally relents, encouraged to tell the truth by her coworker and mother (neither of whom really knows what she has to disclose), and reveals her secret, all hell breaks loose. Written by Geoffrey Gilmore, Sundance Film Festival Director

Twisted yet Sweet
10 October 2006 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in a preview screening presented by Bobcat Goldthwait. He was incredibly funny as he talked about the hassles that he had to go through to get this film made.

It was definitely worth it. This film really cuts to the core of human relationships. It deals with love fidelity, and the value and pitfalls of secrets and honesty. Yes, it challenges society's mores, but in a sweet and very funny way.

The casting and writing are both fantastic.

The only major drawback is the graininess of some of the digital photography.

This film may end up being portrayed as a gimmick movie, but that is really an afterthought to the humanity of this fine film.
