SHORTBUS: 10TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING
Dir John Cameron Mitchell.
USA 2006. 101 min. Cert 18.
Shortbus is perhaps the best American film about 9/11, without ever mentioning that day. It’s a giddy, glorious and poignant celebration of love, sex, gender and the freedom to explore, set around the New York nightclub where its characters collide. It’s a rare explicit movie where the sex actually looks fun, and you’ll never hear The Star Spangled Banner quite the same way again.
