In Your Sheets
Drama • Drama, Short Films, 23-Aug-2022
When Cass’s expectations about her first time aren’t met, she confronts the boy who took her virginity. Connie O’Connor directs “In Your Sheets,” a coming-of-age snapshot that captures a complex set of feelings pre and post first-time sex. Early in the evening, Cass is filled with jitters and excitement as she gets ready for what she thinks will be a special evening. When she gets to his apartment however, she finds her partner cold and emotionally detached. (A stain on his sheets further impersonalizes the encounter). The next day, Cass feels weird about the whole thing and tries to express her uneasiness. O’Connor’s film captures the confusion and frustration of the first time, framing authentic performances with specificity and detail. -KA. Writer, director: Connie O'Connor.
