DARE To Threesome by Kipton Cronkite



Last week I saw the triumphant indie film, DARE (2009) which explores natural temptations of sexual boundaries and how the smallest things one does can impact others.  I believe DARE will become 2010’s sure fire cult hit not seen since Cruel Intentions (1999) and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986).  Distributed by Image Entertainment and set in a wealthy suburb, DARE boldly explores the lives of three high school seniors at the crossroads of their adult lives trying to figure out love, rejection and obsession while uncovering how people on the surface are not always who they seem.  The word-of-mouth buzz surrounding DARE has helped it to become one of the most hotly anticipated DVD’s scheduled for release in February 2010.  The two male characters, Zach Gilford (TV’s Friday Night Lights), Ashley Springer (Teeth) and the luminous Emmy Rossum (The Day After Tomorrow, The Phantom of the Opera) head up a stellar cast including Ana Gasteyer (Mean Girls), Rooney Mara (A Nightmare on Elm Street, 2010), comedienne Sandra Bernhard (TV's Roseanne) and Alan Cumming (X2: X-Men United).   The plot begins when a pompous actor tells good girl Alexa (Rossum) that she hasn't lived, she embarks on a bold journey that takes her to mysterious bad boy Johnny (Gilford). Envious, her shy best friend Ben (Springer) also dares to pursue Johnny, complicating Alexa's romance and pushing the boundaries among the three friends.  Johnny, a sexy heartthrob desired by both creates heat and on-screen chemistry between Alexa and Ben who stop at nothing to get Johnny to have sex with them. Over the centuries, pushing boundaries is something our ancestors did quite easily.  DARE gives us hope that the MTV Generation will continue to embrace change and push the door wide open reinforcing it’s okay to go outside our comfort zone.  DARE is a film that encourages and inspires while demonstrating the basic beauty of loving openly… whether with a man or a woman…or both.  Read the full article in the KiptonART Online Magazine!
