“… [Director] Mitchell has long countered the shock and awe with a reminder that the film is, at its heart, about the complexities of relationships.”–Hollywood Reporter
“[Mitchell] reclaims sex — filming it, watching it, talking about it, doing it — as something both deeply funny and transcendently human: a revolving door that leads to the senses and to the heart.”–Boston Globe
CCA is thrilled to bring back this subversive dramedy, Shortbus, having shown at CCA during its initial theatrical run in 2006.
Set in a post-9/11, Bush-exhausted New York City, Shortbus tells its story with sexual frankness, suggesting new ways to reconcile questions of the mind, pleasures of the flesh, and imperatives of the heart. After fifteen years, SHORTBUS still shines as a bold and fearless exploration of love, sex, and everything in between.
