TWO GIRLS AND A GUY
About The Production
Why did such a seemingly talented and passionate man stoop to
such damaging sexual duplicitousness? Did he really love either
of them? Can love exist under a veil of lies? And what about his
These and other questions come to the fore in James Toback's provocative,
sexy and cinematically inventive look at the comedy and confusion
of romance: "Two Girls and a Guy."
Writer/director James Toback re-examines the age-old love triangle
from an entirely new angle in his provocative comedy "Two
Girls and a Guy." Shot in just eleven days almost entirely
in real time and with a frank sexual realism, the film is a bold
attempt to capture dramatically and visually the intensity, complexity
and ambiguity of modern relationships in a time when fidelity,
sexuality and honesty aren't always a happy trio.
Which of the three will survive and who will fall in love are
two of the questions that drive the psychological suspense in
this emotionally charged tale of the late '90s.
"The essential idea," Toback says, "was to portray
and dramatize an increasingly significant part of the modern sexual/romantic
world, a world in which AIDS, while acknowledged as the ongoing
health danger it surely is, has ceased to paralyze people in their
quest for sexual discovery, a world in which traditional ideas
about romance and love - sexual fidelity, commitment, permanence
- are all being rigorously re-examined, a world in which honesty
and directness are qualities valued as highly in theory as they
are violated frequently in practice."
Thus was set in motion a story of three characters drawn into
an unexpected dissection of the desires, passions and fears that
brought them together in the first place and will perhaps now
drive them apart.
Says Toback: "These two women have each spent ten months
with Blake, thinking he was theirs. Now they know he's a liar
and a cheat. So a) they want to know how he did it; b) they want
to know why he did it; and c) there's still a matter of competition
