Do not read the blurb beforehand...watch this with no prior information. Because...

It's precise.

It's beautiful.

It just shouldn't end!

Perfectly acted, written and directed. Well bloody done.

"Never Have I Ever... Been in love."

The awkward and tentative ANNABELLE, 40 has invited TESSIE, 18, an extrovert sex worker to stay with her in her mother Libby's home. Over a vodka-fueled game of Never Have I Ever, Tessie challenges Annabelle to a series of sex-related questions culminating in Annabelle finally revealing she's a virgin and her mother is dying. Annabelle and Tessie explore their differences and similarities, especially their fractured relationships with their parents. Tessie's mom died when she was 10 and her dad kicked her out and Annabelle's dad left when she was young. Annabelle and Tessie don't know what to do with the tangible chemistry building between them, Tessie initiates contact wordlessly extending the offer of a sexual liaison. But Annabelle points out it's late. When the possibility for a deeper connection hangs in the air between them, they both clumsily bring the evening to an end.
