What I liked

The acting was great, specifically during the actual sex scene. It made what could have been an uncomfortable moment on stage funny to the audience, and captured the insecurities of sex perfectly.

What I didn't like

My only critique would be the power of Astin’s voice. It was a tad quiet in comparison to Corvino’s, which made it difficult to hear at times.

My overall impression

What a thought provoking story superbly told by two great actors. I was thoroughly captivated by the ebb and flow of the plot, and the two contradicting lifestyles each of the characters led. It greatly explored the stereotypes of sexual encounters and consent/respect within that realm. It had just the right amount of balance of funny and drama. I would definitely see it again!
