Miami Beach Cinematheque. From Nov 22nd through 24th, 2008. The film Filth and Wisdom, directed by Madonna, premieres at the Miami Beach Cinematheque from Nov 22nd through 24th, 2008 at 7:45 and 9:30 p.m. Madonna's directorial debut, Filth and Wisdom, is a hilariously sexy tale of three roommates who must delve into mischievous and naughty behavior in pursuit of bigger and brighter futures.
A Ukrainian immigrant, A.K. (Eugene Hutz), finances his dreams of "trans-continental superstardom" with his band, Gogol Bordello, by turning tricks as a role-playing cross dresser. As A.K. literally whips the privileged of London into shape, he also secretly pines for the object of his affection, Holly (Holly Weston), an aspiring ballerina looking for her big break while moonlighting as a slippery stripper.
Meanwhile, Juliette (Vicky Mclure) steals medicine from her pharmaceutical job in hopes of quenching her dreams of helping Africa's youth. Filth and Wisdom is every bit as erotic and playful as it is poignant and touching, revealing the universal struggles we all face in our pursuits of happiness.
