Dry Spell (2013)
-Review by Nic Brown-
is never easy. Two people who decided to spend their lives together
come to the conclusion that the idea may not have been so great.
Then they have to go through financial and emotional turmoil while
they figure out who gets what. Even in the best of cases, the whole
process rarely ends well. But in “Dry Spell” things seem to be
different for Sasha (Women of Horror featured actress Suzi
Sasha and Kyle’s continued friendship has its ups and downs for the pair as, during their weekly coffee date, Sasha learns that Kyle hasn’t been seeing anyone since the break-up. This seems to bother her. It’s only when she’s out on a date though that Sasha realizes just how much she’s affected by Kyle’s self-imposed celibacy. Sasha discovers she can’t ‘get her juices flowing’ sexually and she thinks it’s because she feels guilty that Kyle isn’t seeing anyone. So Sasha sets out on a strange mission to get her ex-husband laid, in an effort to free herself from her own ‘dry spell’.
At first Kyle isn’t interested in her attempts to set him up with anyone; in fact she has to bribe him with the offer to return his favorite sofa that she kept after the divorce .The results of her efforts are not what Kyle would hope for as he goes through a series of dates with some very strange women. Eventually Kyle meets Mary (Rachael Robbins), the first woman who seems like she might have potential. All the while, Sasha has been growing more and more desperate to see Kyle succeed, to the point that she stalks him on his date and refuses the advice of her friends. The question soon becomes whether or not Sasha’s own personal dry spell is due to guilt over Kyle not getting to have sex with someone else, or her own unresolved feelings for him.
