Sex and Breakfast with Culkin and Dushku
I just caught sight of this film called Sex and Breakfast starring Macaulay Culkin, Eliza Dushku, Kuno Becker, and Alexis Dziena in what is billed as a smart, sexy and insightful drama.
It tells the story of two couples who visit a sex therapist and are introduced to the idea of group sex therapy as a way to fix issues within their own relationships. Yes, boys, that includes the ladies.
It seems that everyone is going to try to get together with everyone – I suggest that it's only fair that Kuno Becker and Macaulay Culkin get together as Eliza Dushku and Alexis Dziena so obviously do.
As expected things are going to go wrong though. There's jealousy and insecurities galore, and soon relationships are being shaken and eventually they'll all realise that there's more to love than Sex and Breakfast.
Here's a clip from the official press pack:
“Meet James (Macaulay Culkin) and Heather (Alexis Dziena). Their relationship isn’t working. A cold distance has grown between them and their intimate moments feel forced. Heather is a take-charge problem solver who sometimes gets too carried away for her own good. She’s determined to make her relationship with James work, even if it means being overbearing or making questionable decisions. James has recently started to discover that he’s easily manipulated. He can’t remember if this is the way he’s always been, but he’s going to do something about it in this relationship, that’s for damn sure.
Meet Ellis (Kuno Becker) and Renee (Eliza Dushku). Their relationship isn’t working. The spark of passion they once felt has started to fade and both are fearful that this could mark the beginning of the end. Renee is thoughtful and honest, but recently she’s found herself feeling slightly isolated and bored with Ellis. At times Ellis comes off as brash or thick with machismo, but he’s essentially a sensitive guy whose primary concern is ensuring that he and Renee remain loyal to each other through what seems to be a turbulent phase in their relationship.
Tension grows when Dr. Wellbridge (Joanna Miles) offers her experimental treatment to rekindle the cooling relationship. On the doctor’s orders, the couples embark on a partner swap that leaves some thrilled and others thwarted.”
Watching the trailer it seems rather interesting, and it's been getting some not bad comments and reviews. My only concern is the over reliance of the trailer on the lesbian aspect between the two female characters, and ultimately for hot blooded heterosexual males out there, the romping between Eliza Dushku and Alexis Dziena. Is it trying to get people into the film the cheap way?
Well that might not matter in the end if the film turns out to be good, and from the reviews so far there might just be something more to it than that.
