Synopsis by Mark Deming
Three couples decide to expand the boundaries of their relationships but find that's easier said than done in this independent comedy drama. A handful of friends decide to head up to a cabin in the woods for a weekend of uninhibited fun and possible mate-swapping, but not everyone shows up with the same ideas in mind. Katherine (Erin Wells) has been out of work for months and hasn't had sex with her husband, Mark (Brad Dryborough), in a year. Katherine has decided she needs some physical attention whether Mark likes it or not, but Mark is an emotional wreck struggling to save his marriage. Maria (Arabella Bushnell) and Ken (Ryan Robbins) have been together for years without managing to get married, and while their relationship is stable and committed, they're both afraid things are getting a bit dull. And Jason (Ben Cotton), the fun-loving bachelor of the group, was supposed to bring along his relatively long-term girlfriend, but instead arrives with Ginny (Justine Warrington), a very free-spirited bisexual he met at a party a few days before. With a video camera at the ready, the couples set out for two days of sexual fun and games, but before long they're forced to challenge their assumptions about themselves and their relationships. The first feature film from director Dylan Akio Smith, The Cabin Movie received its world premiere at the 2005 Toronto Film Festival.
