Synopsis: Shortbus is the exclusive salon "for the gifted and challenged" where New Yorker's can work out their sexual relationships, no matter what they may be.
It's darkly humoured, has excellent dialogue, good story, is unusual yet pertinent, professional but not overdone. It's impressive.
There's full frontal (male and female) and varied sex acts (actual not simulated), but it is the characters' stories which drive the film. It is not gay, it is not straight; it's about sex, sexuality, and relationships. It's about people.
