"The Shape of Things" is a 2001 intelligent comedy by popular American author and film director Neil LaBute. Directed by Stacy Johnson, the central themes in "The Shape of Things" focus on the nature of stoicism, art, psychopathy, intimacy, explorations of love, and people's willingness to do things for love. It is set in a small university town in the American Midwest and centers on the lives of four young students who become emotionally and romantically involved with each other. "The Shape Of Things" stars Jamie Woodham, Ian Sorensen, Sophie Moeller and Ryan Kelly.
