In Catherine Lacey’s THE ANSWERS, an eccentric actor, Kurt Sky, is determined to find the perfect relationship --- even if it means paying women to fulfill distinctive roles in his Girlfriend Experiment. Mary is hired as the “Emotional Girlfriend,” which is certainly better than the “Anger Girlfriend” or the “Maternal Girlfriend,” and is pulled into Kurt’s ego-driven and messy attempt at human connection.
