“Excited” is a romantic comedy probing at the nature of sexual dysfunction.
Kevin Staal, (Cam Cronin) 37, is successful at work, and not-so-successful in love. After eight years of singlehood, he’s finally met a woman he likes. But a few things stand in their way. For starters, there is Kevin’s rusty courting skills. Then there’s his mother’s desperate need for a grandchild. Finally, there is the fact that Kevin suffers from primary premature ejaculation.
Excited is a character-driven film that examines intimate and familial relationships with humour and subtlety as Kevin finally accepts the challenge to “walk” before he runs.
