1977. Leeds Playhouse, Leeds, England. A British art student and part-time usher at the playhouse accompanies his naive, unsophisticated American fiancée to a screening of That Obscure Object of Desire. She doesn’t understand the film despite the English subtitles. She only wonders if maybe the male lead actor needed glasses because he seemed unaware that his love interest was two different women.

Now I need to see this film.
I saw it again, years later, with Dean this time. I still didn’t quite get it. He doesn’t even remember it.
Me too! (Runs to check Netflix)
Probably not there. You can buy it on Amazon, but I don’t know that it is streaming on anything.
