30 Beats (2012)

Last Updated: May 2013

When the doe-eyed Julie (Condola Rashad) seeks out worldly anthropologist Adam in a determined effort to lose her virginity, the stage is set for a dive into a world of sensual singlehood in New York City. The encounter triggers a chain reaction that connects 10 city-dwellers over a period of three sweltering days. After de-flowering Julie, an out-of-sorts Adam looks up seductive psychic Erika (Jennifer Tilly), who in turn frolics with bike messenger Diego, who later declares his love for the scarred beauty Laura (Paz de la Huerta), who subsequently tries to seduce her chiropractor Matt. The shifting locations, emotions and circumstances surrounding these rendezvous paint a multi-faceted picture of passionate-and often unrequited-love in the city. Matt's lust for switchboard operator Kim is complicated by a lesbian fling, which also indirectly affects Kim's interest in speechwriter Julian, who in turn is enthralled by Alice, a call girl on the verge of a career change. Taking on one last job, Alice pays off a debt by dutifully seducing the virgin Sean, who it turns out is the best friend of Julie-the virgin whose first encounter opens the film.
