When two college students, Sam and Thea, meet Coles at a party, their mutual attraction is immediate, leading to a passionate and awkward night together, and the onset of an intensely charged bond. As they continue to push the sexual boundaries of their friendship, however, they are tested by Sam and Coles' incipient romance and Thea's increasing recklessness, until the relationship dissolves amid a cloud of fear, resentment and mistrust. Eight years later they reunite. An animator for a high-profile ad agency, Coles now lives with Claire, his girlfriend of five years. Thea is happily married to Miles, with whom she owns a flourishing restaurant. And Sam has just returned to Manhattan after working in London where she recently broke off her engagement. Yet upon reconnecting, the three are drawn back into the complicated dynamic that defined their relationship from the start and are forced to confront the true meaning of commitment and love.Written by

A calmer version of Jerry Springer
I'm not sure why, but while I was at Hollywood Video, I ran across XX/XY and decided to give it a shot. What did I have to loose? It was free! :D I'm in a special club. Anywho, XX/XY takes on at first this gritty type of independent film with a couple of actors I knew. Mark Ruffalo who I just recently saw in In the Cut and Kathleen Robertson who I have seen in Scary Movie 2.
The film is about Mark who plays Coles, a wanna be director who meets Sam, a simple girl who lives with her roommate, Thea, played by Robertson. Coles, Sam, and sometimes Thea hook up, but it is Sam and Coles that truly fall for each other. But when Coles goes too far with Thea, Sam breaks it off with him. They meet again ten years later coincidentally and despite Coles being in a serious relationship, questions if he still has feelings for Sam.
It's an interesting movie, but I did like it's true honest drama and human emotions. Although I felt like I could easily see these situations on a talk show, it still wasn't a bad movie to watch.
