Synopsis by Ryan Shriver
Director/writer Alex Holdridge stars as one half of a romantically involved couple at a crossroads in their relationship in his 2003 romantic comedy Sexless. Karen (Kelly Dealyn) and Andy (Holdridge) have been a couple for five years. When they are both accepted to teach English in Japan under the provision that they marry, Andy begins to ponder whether he is ready for the ultimate commitment. In order to put themselves to the test, Andy proposes that he and Karen separate for one month in order to sort out their feelings for one another, as well as to temporarily re-enter the dating scene. Meanwhile, Andy's pal Robert (Brian McGuire) finds himself falling in love with Carissa, a young woman who will soon be leaving for graduate school hundreds of miles away. The pair enter into a tentative, lust-filled relationship that will soon require Robert and Carissa, like Karen and Andy, to make a decision regarding the future of their relationship. Sexless was selected to compete in the 2003 SXSW Film Festival, where it won the Best Narrative Jury Award and the Best Narrative Audience Award.
