The Book of Gabrielle

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Gabrielle is writing an illustrated guide book on sex, taking inspiration from childhood fantasies, past partners (male and female), and her current relationship with a younger woman.
Professional curiosity leads her to Saul Bernard, an established writer, whose sexually charged narratives have seeped into her secular Jewish attitudes ever since childhood. The more Gabrielle tells him about her book, the more he wants to mentor and shape her success.
Gabrielle rebels, yet as the book takes form, Saul presses on. Is he jealous or desirous? Gabrielle breaks free of his patriarchal mentoring and goes it alone.
