In this episode, I talk about Jane Campion’s 2003 film, “In the Cut.” Meg Ryan plays, Frannie, an English teacher who becomes embroiled in a murder investigation after parts of a woman’s body are found in her garden. She may have even seen the murder victim shortly before the crime. After the lead detective on the case interviews her, the two of them become involved in a dark, torturous relationship. “In the Cut” is a deeply erotic and feminist film that centers female sexuality and female pleasure. It also explores the dark side of desire and the complicated relationships between men and women. There are spoilers in this episode. I also talk explicitly and openly about sex.
