Lie With Me

This almost-hard-core movie takes a look at modern 'love', such as it is, for a pair of urban young people. After a few chance meetings, he and she end up having sex before they even know each others' names. They then decide to go steady, and have a hectic and graphic sexual relationship, while personal problems in their lives get put on the back burner. Over time they come to realise that even though they are intimate sexually, they have not yet learned to trust and support each other in their daily lives. Not for the prudish.
