This is micro-budget film-making at its best!
1 April 2015 | by m-distSee all my reviews

The movie is a great example of what filmmakers can accomplish on a shoestring. An enjoyable independent film without production pretensions, it is technically accomplished with simple framing, brisk pace and some really fine acting by a cast of unknowns.

We maintain a rooting interested in our heroine (Olivia) as she goes on her comedic, cringe-worthy quest to better understand the nature of her self-diagnosed asexuality. Forced to face her lifelong problem, Olivia, decides to explore her sexuality issues by losing her virginity to the sexy loaner boyfriend of her share-and-share alike pal. Hilarious complications ensue.

One clever element in the film that really works: Olivia decides to document her "experiment" which allows the director to conduct real interviews with men and women of all ages and sexual orientations who frankly discuss first sexual encounters, sexual identity likes-dislikes and the meaning of the act to each individual. These interviews are feathered through the story as a subtle comment on what is happening to Olivia.

The script has loads of heart. And the well-earned ending sneaks up you and left me feeling warm and happy, as most good romantic comedies should (and do).
