Language, communication, relationships, sex — they all get easier with practice. And they are all the elements that infuse lurid life into writer/director Kyle Alvarez's provocative film about a man who establishes a sexual relationship with someone he’s never seen.

To promote his unpublished novel, Davy Mitchell sets out on a road trip with his younger brother. Yet, the initial novelty quickly wears off and the road life turns lonely and unfulfilling for Davy. Then, one night in a motel room, a random phone call from a mysterious woman named Nicole ignites a funny and intimate long-distance relationship that leaves Davy happier than he has been in years. Hoping there is more to his new reality than a voice and a phone bill, Davy decides he must meet Nicole. Ultimately, his decision means he must face not only the truth about his relationship but also the truth about himself.

Based on Davey Rothbart's autobiographical article for GQ Magazine, Easier With Practice avoids the visual limitations of a phone relationship by fleshing out the story with inspired cinematography and three-dimensional performances. Combined, they bring to life a truly well-crafted story. Erotically charged yet intellectually stimulating, Easier With Practice is an enthralling love story for the cell-phone generation.
