Assunta de Rossi,
"Strange Fits of Passion" is the hilarious tale of a sexually-curious, romantically-frustrated bookstore clerk on a mission to lose her virginity. In between encounters with other people, she returns to the one person she can trust and truly relate to, her gay friend Jimmy, whose faith in love is being shaken by the revelation that his boyfriend has been unfaithful.
I saw this at the Noosa Film Festival. Strange Fits of Passion is a quirky, black coming of age comedy drama. It twists and turns and takes you on a trip of self realisation. Michela Noona gives a powerful perfomance as She, who comes to grips with her self absorbtion.
The secondary story line, of her best friend is heart wrenching, yet this film combines humour with 20 something angst. Not one for the over 35 market but anyone between 16 and 35 will love it.
