An eye-opening gem of a short film collection, Fourplay offers up four short stories both hilarious and emotionally powerful. Each of the individual films follow seemingly ordinary characters who find themselves thrust into some very unusual sexual situations. In Skokie, a closeted woman’s crush on her minister’s wife erupts during a weekend of dog-sitting. In Austin, a young couple discovers a kinky way to keep their relationship alive. In Tampa, a man with an extremely small penis finds his nirvana in a public restroom. And in San Francisco, a cross-dressing sex-worker faces a challenging assignment with a elderly quadriplegic man. Fourplay handles a wide variety of extremely taboo subjects with great sensitivity and depicts sex acts as potentially cathartic moments in our lives. It’s also riotously funny and deeply heartfelt.
