A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

Okay, the log line sounds pretty awful. Two guys, old friends, both straight, decided to enter an amateur porn contest* by filming themselves having sex with each other. Awful, right? But Humpday, a new film by Seattle filmmaker Lynn Shelton, is one of the funniest, most honest films I've seen in a very long time.

It's only in NY and Seattle but will be opening in more cities in the next few weeks.

Hollywood could learn so much from this movie about how to create real characters who are far more engaging, funny and poignant than anything you'll see in a studio movie.

*It's a real contest held in Seattle.
