'My Awkward Sexual Adventure' (2012): Interview with actor Jonas Chernick

'My Awkward Sexual Adventure' (2012) is one of my favorite Tribeca films. This is a romantic comedy sure to have you laughing and crying simultaneously; it uniquely explores the complications of intimacy and relationship, an innovative look at the ageless battle of the sexes. Just when I thought I’d seen it all when it comes to romantic (sex) comedies, this one sneaks out of the depths of freezing ‘Winter-peg’ (Winnipeg), Canada, and heats up the screen with love, sex...
