Technically the1995 buddy-cop movie, Money Train counts, but I wouldn't make my worst enemy watch it.
 
I accumulated that list of films a little at time. I watched some of the films; others I just heard about them. If you are looking for where to acquire the films, I suppose Amazon would be as good a place as any to start.

“The Polyamory Breakup Book: Causes, Prevention, and Survival” by Kathy Labriola was a good read. I honestly found it just as helpful for platonic relationships as for the romantic ones it was written for.

 
Ironically, "Crash" (1996 James Spader, Holly Hunter) was my first real introduction to the idea of polyamory. To be sure, it's exploring this obscure car accident kink as the major throughline. But the subculture portrayed are all regularly having sex with others in a clearly ENM fashion I hadn't ever seen portrayed before in any film.
 
I've just binge watched a British series called Trigonometry. Accidental closed triad. Really, really well written with pitfalls and positive outcomes along the way. Nuances on couple's privilege, including exploring the privilege of not allowing the gf to invest in their finances. Impressions of "coming out" and how different people react to that. Highly recommend.
