The Driving Seat

The blurb: One Saturday morning, a middle aged couple decide to make love in their car in the driveway to put a spark back in their marriage – only to find it has rather the opposite effect.

This non-explicit short does a beautiful job of exploring middle-aged sexuality and how things work in long-term relationships. It has a lovely warm humour and an emotional honesty that is refreshing.
