A feature film tailor-made for women's studies or feminist literature students, but a bit too didactic for wide audiences. Female Perversions charts the meltdown of conflicted, high-powered attorney Eve Stephens (Swinton) as she grapples with sexuality and a nomination for a judgeship. She desperately wants to succeed in a man's world and retain some femininity. Her psychological tumult is symbolized sexually, and her biggest fears play out in surreal dream sequences. It's not too hard to figure out the message here, with aphorisms conspicuously scrawled on bus stops, walls and telephone booths.
