Following the stories of three couples - one lesbian, one gay and one straight – ‘That’s Not Us’ explores love, sex and relationships as they take an end-of-September break on the beach. The couples, who are at various stages of their relationships, plan to reconnect and enjoy their time off, but are soon forced to deal with the problems that boil to the surface. Alex and Jackie have been together for seven years, but realise that they are drifting apart as communications break down. James and Spencer are in love but Spencer has received an offer he can’t resist and now doesn’t know what to do. Dougie and Liz have been together for years but are questioning if they really know each other as well as they thought. As the weekend continues, each character is forced to deal with their emotions, often through unavoidable arguments. The film’s dialogue is entirely improvised; the cast were given a brief outline, allowing scenes to unfold naturally, creating a raw connection between each couple. Between the minimalistic design and the complex characters, director William Sullivan creates a story that is both inspiring and relatable, giving contemporary relationships their spot in the limelight.
