Jonas Chernick (who also penned the screenplay) plays a repressed accountant who starts the picture being dumped by his long time girlfriend (Sarah Manninen). It's pretty brutal, to be honest, but she is clearly unsatisfied in a number of important ways. Chernick goes on a pre-scheduled vacation at the same time, but is still convinced he can recapture his love's attention. His best friend (Vik Sahay) promises him a liberating sexual experience, but his plans go awry when he finds himself in a more traditional relationship himself.Read more ›
There is indeed plenty of reference to sex (though not more than partial-frontal nudity), but the film is more than about sex. Giving away the barest sketch of the plot, which becomes pretty obvious rather early on anyhow, it’s an unusual love-triangle story in which Jordan (performed by the script writer Jonas Chernick) is dumped by his would-be fiancée Rachel (played by Sarah Manninen) and ends up taking vacation alone to see if he can find his “sex yoda”, to teach him how to be less boring in bed. With the initial help of a longstanding male Indian-Canadian friend, he ends up accidentally meeting Julia, played by Emily Hampshire, and one rapidly sees that the two of them complement each other rather well: she is thoroughly at home with her body and all manner of things sexual but abysmal with money, while being an accountant he is thoroughly at home in the realm of budgets, taxes, credit cards and the like, but the most awkward and nerdy character with women (at least initially) that I’ve seen in a long time [at times it’s a bit reminiscent of 40 Year Old Virgin].
A dramatic peak occurs roughly halfway through the film, in which we sequentially see each of these three, looking at themselves in a mirror and pondering what it is that they truly want (or need).Read more ›
