Next time someone tells you that porn acting will never get you a legitimate acting job in an Academy Award-nominated director's film, you tell them, "Yes, that is the statistically relevant way to look at things, but look at these trailers for Steven Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience, starring adult star Sasha Grey in the lead role."
The Girlfriend Experience stars real life pornstar Sasha Grey as a $10,000 per night call girl. It first premiered as a surprise during the Sundance Film Festival this year and is being distributed by Magnolia Pictures in May. This is Steven Soderbergh's unofficial "follow-up" to his low budget film Bubble from a few years ago. Neil Miller of Film School Rejects said in his review: "Soderbergh has captured some truly stunning visuals and has delivered a non-linear narrative that is both engaging and not overly complicated." Will definitely be checking this out and for more reasons than just to see Sasha Grey on the big screen.
Release Date: May 22, 2009
Starring: Sasha Grey
