17 – Easier with Practice (2009)

My Rating: 6/10

Synopsis: One night, a bashful young man promoting his short story collection on book tour comes across an odd random phone call in a motel. It’s not long after he seemed to connect with the other person on the other line on a rather intimate level.

The first phone call was drab, and considering that phone sex is taboo for most, it should have piqued my curiosity but I didn’t find myself interested one bit about it. It was hard to believe that someone like Davy would fall prey to such, and the dialogue didn’t help either. Things improved by the middle, the ‘two truths and a lie’ game being my favorite. It had a very awkward and unexpected twist though at the end that I didn’t see coming by a mile.
