We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be. ~May Sarton

I rented the movie Shortbus the other night. There had been so much to-do about the movie over the sex scenes (and yes, they are that graphic) I was afraid that maybe it would turn out to be a poorly done film that was riding on the fact that they showed the actors actually having sex on screen, when in fact that was farthest from the truth. It turned out to be a well-thought out study on relationships and people's interactions with each other, with sex just happening to be one of the aspects of these relationships and interactions. Worth watching if you're not offended by nudity and sex.
