: What does the phrase "in the cut" mean? I think it has a sexual meaning, there was that movie, "In the Cut" with Meg Ryan and Mark Ruffalo.
Yes, there was that movie. Was there anything else? I've never heard this phrase used as an idiom or common phrase, although there are some meanings it might have. If you saw the movie and couldn't figure it out, try Susanna Moore's book. The author will almost always explain the title somewhere, unless it is already obvious. You might have to read the whole book, as it might just be a significant phrase said on p. 283 by one of the characters. SS
