Rent Girlfriends

It's not even in theaters yet (it played Tribeca last week), but you can already rent the Soderberg/Grey project The Girlfriend Experience on Amazon.


It's also airing on HDNet Movies three times on the night of 5/20, but I believe approximately 0% of the country gets that channel. I think it's more of a taunt which HDNet likes to include in their self-promotion ad rotation. ("Hey, look at THIS! Wanna see THIS? Tough nuts, loser! Comcast doesn't let you have THAT channel.")

You can also rent it On-Demand with Direct TV. Ridic.

It's not a "great film" by any stretch of the imagination, but it's poignant in little interesting ways. It tries a little too hard (blending issues of the current economic crisis with Sasha's escort business), but it ends up having a point in the end. Also, there are long shots of Sasha just staring out a window, which I'd pay $10 for.

I really loved this film. Found the style and subject very current and appropriate for the craziness of the world post stock market crash. Sasha looks great. I didn't get to see her Vag...but she's nude a little..and frankly I can google her and see her doing ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING sexually anyway. Def. Worth Seeing!!
