The other day I came across a title in IMDB called A Small Circle of Friends, which a reviewer said addressed "menage a trois" tastefully. I think I might've seen it way back when, but not sure. Sounds like a good one to look up. Karen Allen was always so cute!

RfromRMC, not familiar with that movie you mentioned, but maybe searching keywords or asking at one of the boards over at IMDB.com might help you find it.

Poly in art: here's a thread about finding a portrait of a triad at the Hide/Seek exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC...

Cabaret. And it's a musical. And it has Liza in it.

"I love you and you and you" Polyamory documentary. Sometimes goofy, sometimes revealing. Filmed from the perspective of a monogamous filmmaker which sometimes comes across as a little condescending or confused, but it was fun to watch and helped me work though some anxiety when my boyfriend started dating his other girlfriend (the first outside relationship since we decided to go Poly).

This movie is coming to our city tomorrow. I am wondering if anyone has heard/seen it? Is it worth seeing?

Ya, not poly... we saw it and it was a super good movie, but frustratingly not poly.

Just watched Sex in ’69: Sexual Revolution in America (2009), a special on the History Channel (although I believe it was produced by A&E). There was quite a lot of it devoted to open marriages and group sex at the clothing-optional Sandstone retreat. The word "polyamory" wasn't used. They included excerpts from Sandstone, a documentary by filmmaker Jonathan Dana, who shot it while living there with his then-wife for 15 months. In an interview segment, Dana spoke about his experience living and shooting there, and said that while there he and his wife met another couple with whom they lived in a group marriage for several years after the retreat closed.

Sex in '69 was pretty good, though it really only touched on the topics briefly. However, it wasn't sensationalistic and I quite enjoyed it. If you have the chance, you may want to check it out. Here's a clip, from the distributor's website: http://films.com/PreviewClip.aspx?id=19040

Default Frida!

I'm surprised that no one mentioned the film "Frida." It's pretty much all about the relationship between Frida Khalo and Diego Rivera, which was pretty much full-on poly by today's standards. I think it actually does a good job of representing the complexities and problems that come with loving many people but maintaining what folks would call a "primary" relationship. :: shrugs ::
