A loving couple finds their lives turned upside down when one of them is diagnosed with a medical condition that will prevent them from having sex for an entire year.

Critic Reviews for My Year Without Sex
...a well-meaning yet consistently underwhelming domestic drama that rarely packs the emotional punch that Watt has obviously intended.
Testing a family for breaking points within a comic framework is not exactly new territory, but Watt's scripting is sharp and she plays fast and loose with audience expectation in the cliche department.
We get to care for the characters, but would like to have understood them better.
A gem of a film: a wonderfully observed snapshot that canvasses the emotional pulse of a family in the suburbs. It's the slant with which Watt affectionately embraces her characters that make it so engaging.
Audience Reviews for My Year Without Sex
Good portrayal of a year in the life of a typical suburban Australian family as they deal with the aftermath of the mother's aneurysm. The husband does seem a little too young for her and doesn't quite convince, and there's something not quite right here, but on the whole, pretty good.
This Aussie comedy-drama film comes from director-writer Sarah Watt's idea because she has fought cancer, and her ability to combine dry humour with turbulent humanity remains impressive. While her quotient of subtle reflections upon everyday concerns - and it's really everything, from materialism and sexualisation of kids to search for God - has increased, this pulls back on the laugh-out-loud levity of Look Both Ways. As such, the trials and tribulations on screen can be a bit too much like real life.
Sacha Horler and Matt Day made fantastic chemistry as the married couple of two children.
Australian comedy with everyday story which brings all the characters close to the audience... life questions, big and small, can be overwhelming for most of us... and the movie gives the answers of this tipical suburban family on screen to be seen, laught and maybe remembered in the future. Cute movie to watch!
