Movie-A-Day #86: Bliss (1997).
Viagra was approved for sale in the United States on this day in 1998, forever changing Americans’ sex habits. In fact, it is probably second to only the birth control pill in that regard. Both drugs have helped support the importance of sex to personal well being, which is also the theme of “Bliss,” in which Sheryl Lee and Craig Sheffer play an unfulfilled couple who seek the help of sex therapist Terrance Stamp. It’s an interesting and occasionally thought-provoking film, although it isn’t nearly as exciting as a movie about sex should be.
