Mitchell Butel in Strange Fits of Passion

Strange Fits of Passion

2001 NR

Directed by Aussie Elise McCredie, this bittersweet rites-of-passage tale follows the misadventures of an awkward twentysomething (Michela Noonan) who -- with help from her gay friend (Mitchell Butel) -- sets out to learn about love by losing her virginity. Among those eager to deflower her are a bashful but pretentious bard (Samuel Johnson) and a self-possessed Spanish teacher harboring a secret (Steve Adams).
