Movie Info

A handful of couples discuss their romantic and erotic tribulations on a sunny afternoon in this romantic comedy drama. It's a beautiful day in London, and a number of people head out to Hampstead Heath Park to enjoy the weather, though not every couple on hand is as comfortable as the weather might suggest. Julia (Gina McKee) and Gerry (Hugh Bonneville) are having a picnic as part of a blind date, but they don't seem to be enjoying one another's company. Billy (Ewan McGregor) and Brian (Douglas Hodge) are a gay couple at a crossroads -- Billy wants to settle down and adopt a child, but Brian doesn't believe this will stop his partner's chronic infidelity. Iris (Eileen Atkins) and Eddie (Benjamin Whitrow) were an item many years ago, but aren't sure what to make of one another when they meet by chance in the park. Sara (Catherine Tate) and Pete (Adrian Lester) discover how much they care for one another just as they're on the verge of divorce. Jamie (Andrew Lincoln) finds he has some explaining to do when his wife Molly (Holly Aird) catches him ogling a pretty young woman (Eglantine Rembauville) who is inadvertently exposing her underwear. Ludo (Nick Sidi) and Anna (Sophie Okonedo) are a couple whose romance doesn't seem fated to live out the day. And Noel (Tom Hardy) is a lecherous sort who is looking for a woman as interested in sex as he is. Scenes of a Sexual Nature was the first feature film from director Edward Blum; the picture was shot on a shoestring budget, with the actors being paid union scale in exchange for a share of the film's profits. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

  • Each vignette is wittily worded by neophyte TV writer Aschlin Ditta, and subtly performed by a large ensemble cast that contains a few fairly recognizable surprises.

  • A very respectable ensemble cast of British actors goes completely wasted in Ed Blum's "Scenes of a Sexual Nature" thanks to an inane script and banal dialogue.

    Jun 2, 2007 | Full Review…
  • Nicely filmed and acted, it's an enjoyable, although superficial, look at relationships.

    Dec 30, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Mildly amusing, mostly tedious British drama that completely fails to live up to its provocative title.

    Full review to come later (maybe)... What did this movie teach me? Things aren't always what they appear to be.

    Mildly interesting film about relationships with some good performances. It wasn't compelling enough to hold my attention. I'll watch it again someday to give it more of a chance.

    A wonderful little film. It's almost a play but with the beautiful backdrop of Hampstead Heath. The cast are excellent and the script is tightly written. I'd recommend it to all my actor friends. Even more exciting was the way the film was made. The documentary was the most insightful I've ever seen and added even more to the film. A great find.

    Forget scenes of a sexual nature, which makes you think you're going to watch an upmarket porn movie, and change to scenes of a romantic nature. Some of the stories set on one day on Hampstead Heath don't quite work, despite the best efforts of Ewan McGregor, Hugh Bonneville, Gina McKee, Tom Hardy and Sophie Okonedo. However the ones that do: Andrew Lincoln, Mark Strong, Adrian Lester, Catherine Tate and Eileen Atkins are moving, stunning and funny.
