Calgary International Film Fest: After Sex

Publication YearIssue Date 

After Sex examines the relationships of eight different couples, all in the aftermath of sex. The couples include two friends trying to make their way through the tricky and sometimes heartbreaking ordeals of “friends with benefits,” the confusing realizations of sexual orientation, the ever-present question of “butch versus bitch” and, of course, the swingers married for 35 years. First-time director Eric Amadio boldly takes on the topic of the modern-day relationship in all its glory, delivering it in a real and honest way. Though the film borders on crudeAfter Sex is filled with witty banter, humor and is able to connect with the audience in such a true way that we can all feel better we’re not going through it alone.
