Almost a year ago The Hollywood Reporter‘s Megan Lehmann reviewed Josh Lawson‘s The Little Death (the English translation of “la petite mort,” a French euphemism for orgasm) somewhat favorably. The film is basically a collection of vignettes about odd sexual behavior between couples, but the only one that Lehmann found truly affecting happens “toward the end of the film’s fairly brisk running time. Newcomer Erin James plays Monica, a partially deaf switchboard operator at a video relay service who acts as a go-between connecting deaf-mute Sam (TJ Power) to a phone sex line. The two actors have fairytale chemistry, making this particular segment both hilarious and swooningly romantic.” It sounds worth the rental (or ticket price) for this alone. Magnolia opens it on 6.26.
