In Clement Virgo’s 2005 independent erotic drama Lie With Me, a sexually agressive Leila (Lauren Lee Smith) meets equally voracious David (Eric Balfour) and they begin a torrid affair. Not being used to commitment or real relationships, Leila only knows how to fuck, but not how to love…so begins the vein of drama that runs throughout the film. Beautifully shot, sexually explicit [read: adults only, truly] but not trashy, the movie tugs at certain parts in all of us. It’s a contemporary, lust-charged romance at the base of it all, dealing with the consequence of sex, promiscuity and how it can entangle two people otherwise adrift.
Bottom line: Sexy, brave and raw; I loved it.
