A Guide to Second Date Sex 15 rating

Alexandra Roach (Utopia) and George MacKay (1917) play a couple hopelessly navigating the world of millennial dating, in Rachel Hirons’ distinctly filthy and cringe-heavy comedy.

Romance 2020 81 mins

Director: Rachel Hirons


Laura (Alexandra Roach) and Ryan (George MacKay) have each been totally destroyed by previous long-term relationships but are ready to get back out there. After meeting on a messy night out and arranging a second date, both are hopeful of getting it right this time. Unfortunately, they have no idea what they are supposed to do or how to act. How bad can a second date really go? Laura and Ryan are about to find out.

Adapted from her acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe play, Rachel Hirons’ (Power Room, The Vodka Diaries) directorial debut is a sweet story of two people just trying to make a connection, but it also brims with her distinctly filthy and cringe-heavy humour.
