This movie is about a woman (a lesbian) in a committed relationship with two kids who gets knocked on the head at the playground, after which she decides she wants to experiment with prostitution.
Complications ensue.Lots of dialogue between main character & her partner/hook-ups.Female director, non-exploitative nudity,very thoughtful.
Don't know where it's going to go.I liked it.Unique female perspective throughout, don't think a male director could do this film in this way.Hope this is helpful.

I'd need to watch again to be sure, but this may fail the reverse Bechdel. The only conversation between men I recall was as part of a mixed-gender group, and I don't know if the men were named.
