Let’s Rap co-stars Emma Hunter and Kristian Bruun reunite in Molly McGlynn’s coy short film 3-Way (Not Calling).
Hunter and Bruun play a quirky couple in a modest relationship consisting of Netflix and coffee dates. When Hunter suggests spicing up their intimate time with a threesome, Bruun is reluctant but trusts its potential benefit.
The humour is as awkward as the short’s cumbersome title, but all of the jokes land. The leads are very convincing as a likeable, randy couple. It’s nice to see Bruun play a different take on this sexually ambitious role (he was a scene stealer in this year’s How to Plan an Orgy in a Small Town), and Hunter’s amusing turn as a curious girlfriend is among some of her best work.
When Molly McGlynn decides to tackle a feature-length film, here’s hoping she sticks to this same lighthearted and refreshingly honest tone.
