Director Steven Soderbergh follows up his highly impressive string of big budget smashes with this self-proclaimed “companion piece” to 1989’s hugely influential SEX, LIES, AND VIDEOTAPE.
Written by New York-based playwright Coleman Hough, FULL FRONTAL concerns a day in the life of a series of confused, depressed, and neurotic Los Angeles residents. Ed is a writer with a script currently in production and a play that is about to open. Ivan’s writing partner Carl is married to Lee, an unhappy Human Resources VP. Lee is having an affair with superstar actor Calvin, who is costarring with Francesca in Carl and Ed’s film. Lee’s sister Linda is a masseuse who is looking forward to an upcoming weekend rendezvous with a stranger she met on the Internet. That man just so happens to be Ed.
