Sharrie Heiman (Angela Dix) was no one special. She was your average, edgy, chain-smoking lesbian happily living with her girlfriend Clitoria when everything changed. Sharrie was enjoying a quiet night in the bathtub when she gets her period. Normally, this wouldn't seem like that big of a deal except that Sharrie's body is forcefully ejecting whole GALLONS of blood!! Yikes! That definitely isn't normal! But Sharrie just decides to accept the fact that she's geysering blood all over the place and just goes about her life.
Back to normal life? Good luck with that Sharrie...
Obviously bleeding at this magnitude was bound to affect Sharrie's life at some point. When Sharrie reveals her ailment to her girlfriend Clitoria (Valerie Castro), mostly Clitoria is angry that her sex life and furniture are basically ruined now. Even the gynecologist (Ian Arnold) that Sharrie goes to can't see any way to help her! Weeks go by and Sharrie continues to bleed and bleed until Clitoria finally has enough. Sharrie can't hold down a job without bleeding on everything and everyone in sight, and her sex life with Clitoria doesn't even exist anymore...so Clitoria kicks Sharrie to the curb.
I would gladly leave the house if she was the one I was dating...
but that's just my opinion...
On the streets with nothing but a backpack full of clothes, Sharrie gets by selling her blood at the local blood bank - gross - and using the money to rent rooms in a seedy motel where she washes her blood-soaked clothes in the bathtub. Running out of options, Sharrie turns to prostitution and heavy drinking to forget about her daily woes and heavy flow...that is, until she has a brilliant idea. Her ex girlfriend Clitoria made money as an artist who painted portraits of vaginas and made decent money at it...maybe Sharrie can expand on that concept and add her own personal "splash" of individuality to her work. But as Sharrie's art starts to get noticed and she quickly becomes famous for her work, she will be led down the garden path of danger, exploitation, and even death! Look out Sharrie! And look out audience!
When I first heard the general plot of this movie I was not expecting top quality comedy, I was expecting something jokey and silly with too many bad jokes and lots of fake blood....but those expectations would have been a cinematic masterpiece worthy of an Oscar compared to what I saw in this movie! The Period is the most poorly made movie I have ever seen in my life. As much as I hated A Serbian Film, The Beast, and The Best of Backyard Wrestling 4 - all these movies at least TRIED to be good! No such luck here. The Period looks like it was filmed by fresh-out-of-the-gate film school students on a shakey, hand-held camera, with horrific sound quality, and the dumbest plot EVER. Half of the movie makes no sense, the other half feels like it's forcing itself to be disturbing and weird....there is nothign genuine or fun about this movie! And drinking during this movie would likely induce nightmares so I don't recommend trying to make it any better. There is no redeeming quality to this movie. Do not watch this, please! Save yourself and your time, The Period is the biggest movie letdown of my year!!
AWFUL. JUST THE WORST...THAT APPLIES TO THIS MOVIE
AND MY DECISION MAKING CAPABILITIES.
