The Mystery of Love and Sex
By Bathsheba Doran | Directed by Corinne Wieben
“By the end you may feel giddy, as if you’d just stepped off a whirling theme-park ride.” The New York Times
Deep in the American South, Charlotte and Jonny have been best friends since they were nine. She’s Jewish, he’s Christian; he’s black, she’s white. Charlotte and Jonny definitely love each other - but not that way . . . or maybe that way. They might be moving in together. They might be getting married after college. Also, they both might be gay. Or bisexual. A compelling story of intricate relationships, The Mystery of Love and Sex is an explosive and contemporary look at race, sexual identity, and family dynamics. Contains mature language and themes.
