Miami Beach Cinematheque. From Jul 31st through Aug 2nd, 2009.
Miami Beach Cinamatheque, in collaboration with Emerging Pictures, presents the HD premiere of the film The Girlfriend Experience, directed by Steven Soderbergh this year and featuring Sasha Grey, Chris Santos, Glenn Kenny and Timothy Davis.
Set in the weeks leading up to the 2008 presidential election, The Girlfriend Experience is five days in the life of Chelsea (adult film star Sasha Grey in her non-adult film debut), an ultra high-end Manhattan call girl who offers more than sex to her clients, but companionship and conversation – “the girlfriend experience.”
Despite a wide variety of happy customers, Chelsea wants to expand her business. Her real boyfriend Chris, a personal trainer at a downtown gym, has come to terms with his girlfriend’s level of experience, not to mention the posh apartment they share as a result of her success.
