Kim Cattrall, Dustin Ingram, Brian Dennehy, Keith David, Jamie Tisdale / Fiction / English

Kim Cattrall stars as an ageing porn actress in this sweet-hearted indie take on the teen-sex-comedy.

Awkward coat-hanger limbs, frizzy hair and a fondness for 1930s music loudly announce 17 year-old Tobe’s dorkdom. No surprise that he’s a virgin. But dork or not, Tobe’s still a teenage boy and when his favourite X-rated actress, star of such 70s hits as Saturday Night Beaver, schedules a comeback appearance live on stage, nothing will keep him away. Even a few hundred miles and their 32 year age-gap.
