A sex therapist who has never had an orgasm, a dominatrix who is unable to connect, a gay couple considering opening up their relationship, and a colorful cast of characters all converge on a weekly gathering called Shortbus; a mad nexus of art, music, politics, and polysexual carnality. Steamy but sweet, director John Cameron Mitchell’s (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) outrageously explicit cult classic explores the comic and tragic intersections between love and sex in a post-9/11, Bush-exhausted New York City.
