…..It begins with an idealistic young 1950s couple having hot sex in a train bathroom after reading Shirley Jackson’s short story “The Lottery” in The New Yorker. That’s something people did a lot back then. From there, that young couple ends up living with Shirley Jackson and her smarmy professor husband in the vicinity of Bennington College, in Vermont. This thrusts them into a Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf-like situation, except with lesbian erotic overtones and it lasts a year….extract from a review by Neal Pollack, June 9th, 2020 in Book & Film Globe.
