Sensitive Parts is the fourth narrative feature film from unabashedly personal DIY auteur Brendan Prost, which reunites many of the collaborators from his previous feature Spaces and Reservations and his award-winning short film Getting There. Shot around Metro Vancouver during the spring of 2015 on a modest self-financed budget,  Sensitive Parts is a tender, sharply observed dramatic comedy about how the lingering consequences of people’s interpersonal history can sabotage even the most solid of relationships.

When an an insecure young woman, Dolore (Carolyn Yonge), introduces her new boyfriend (Sean Marshall Jr.) to her long-time best friend (Jennifer Kobelt) and discovers that they have a less-than-platonic personal history, her insecurity and interpersonal fears get kicked into hyperdrive and threaten to destroy both relationships. But, with a little help from the imaginary manifestation of her pop star alter ego (Monice Peter), Dolore learns to combat her paranoia and anxiety before they consume her and the people she loves.

Bounding effortlessly between outlandish situational humour to resonant character drama—and back again—Sensitive Parts is ultimately a hopeful dramatic comedy about finding courage and self-love, the resilience of female friendship, and the possibility for self-transformation in the face of emotional crisis. 

Sensitive Parts has been heralded by the Independent Critic as “a sweet, funny and endearing little film that blossoms largely on the strength of its top not chensemble cast” and by the UK Film Review in a four-star review as “an instant cult classic… like a lost gem from Woody Allen’s back catalogue”.

“Yonge’s performance is as unnerving as it is captivating, and Prost never lets it slip into easy melodrama.” - Barry Hertz, The Globe and Mail
