Shortbus

by John Cameron Mitchell Competition New Fiction Film

New York City: Sofia Lin is married to the handsome but unambitious and slightly dim-witted Rob. She works as a sex therapist. Her everyday life changes as she comes into contact with a couple: A slightly egotistical former child star Jamie and former prostitute James. At the outset, James suggests to his boyfriend that they open up their relationship to sex with others. During their first consultation, Sofia snaps, slaps Jamie, and then apologetically reveals her "pre-orgasmic" status. The couple suggests she attend a weekly sexual salon in Brooklyn called "Shortbus," which is hosted by drag performance artist Justin Bond. Sofia slowly opens up to new experiences.
