Well, thanks to Saudade's links, there are some to could check out. =o) I already have "Threesome" saved on instant watch for an evening that we're not all sick as dogs and ready to actually WATCH a movie together. =o)

"Paint your wagon" wouldn't be something Maca would enjoy, it's an old musical.

But that "Bandits" sounds cool. =o)

It is! But you need to know it's one of THOSE movies-- it's so terrible that it's actually brilliant to watch. The script was flat and ridiculous, and they got a stellar enough cast that it still sparkles.

Spoiler alert: Cate Blanchett's character falls in with a pair of bank robbers, and then falls in love with each of them. She suggests just dating both of them. Something to this effect:

"What if I don't want to?"
"Don't want to what?"
"Choose. I don't want to choose... I mean, we're bank robbers, right? We break all the rules... I guess I'm an outlaw too."

Few films have made me happier.

End of spoilers

Oh, and Kevin Smith's Chasing Amy certainly isn't a mono film. Not sure what it is, or why it makes me cry every time, but it's worth watching. My tagline on here is a quote from this film.

Default Frieda

How about "Freida" about the life of Frieda Kahlo and Diego Rivera. They were not polyamorous, but they sure had many loves outside of their marriage. I friggin love Selma Hayek in this role.

Another true story along the same lines I can think of is "Henry and June" based on the diaries of Anias Nin, who struggled with her balancing act between many loves including her husband, cousin, and Henry Miller and his wife June. (The book is waaay better, )

"it's complicated" is definitly more about an affair then about poly... but there are "complications" which arise in her affair which are kinda inside jokes that poly folks would DEFINITLY appreciate! LOL

These are great recs guys! We just watched The Dreamers which isn't 100% poly but it was excellent all the same. Eva Green was phenomenal and she's gorgeous too!

Also has anyone seen A Home At The End of the World? That's one got one of my favourite lines in it: "It's just love"

Default Tilda Swinton rocks

I've heard Tilda Swinton is poly in real life. She's also the love of my life. (Shh, don't tell my boys that I'd be mono for her... )

I feel like she's done some other poly-esque films, but I can't recall any. It might be worth checking.
