Winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Calgary International Film Festival, MY AWKWARD SEXUAL ADVENTURE is shot with squirm-inducing hilarity and worldly wisdom. Jordan, a sweet but nai•ve Jewish accountant, is head-over-heels in love with his girlfriend Rachel. But when he finally works up the nerve to pop the question, Rachel admits she finds him sexually boring and needs a break. Entirely demoralized, Jordan ends up at a strip club where he meets Julia, a spreadsheet-challenged exotic dancer (and amateur chef) who begins to teach Jordan the art of seduction in exchange for some help with her finances. Will this arrangement bring Jordan’s estranged girlfriend back to her senses? One part American Pie and two parts Woody Allen, this laugh-out-loud Canadian romp is perfect for date night!
