*Online Premiere* Logline: A woman lusts after a marble statue, but has to settle for her human boyfriend. Our take: “Medusa,” by director India Donaldson, is a provocative but playful exploration of desire and objects of affection. The statue of Perseus holding the disembodied head of Medusa transfixes Meredith on a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. At home, however, her relationship with her boyfriend, Pete, is lacking in excitement. When the couple hosts a small dinner party with some friends, Meredith retreats into her own head. While the conversation amongst the others lands on tales of creepy dudes getting handsy, Meredith is preoccupied with a saucy text thread under the table with an unlabeled number. For its conceptual foundation and fantasy leanings (who is this unlabeled number?), it also works as a naturalistic character study of an ambivalent relationship, perfectly attuned to subtle shifts in behavior and mood, and led by wonderful performances from Hilary Ives and Rudy Mungaray.
