Story


"Finding Bliss" is a romantic comedy that explores the adult film industry through the eyes of idealistic 25 year-old award-winning film school grad, Jody Balaban (played by Leelee Sobieski), who moves to Hollywood with big dreams only to end up editing porn to pay her bills. Jody takes a job at Grind Productions, a profitable adult film company, where she is interviewed by the shrewd president of Grind, Irene Fox (played by Kristen Johnston). Irene seduced Jody into taking the job editing porn by believing she'll be bringing her romantic female point of view to the adult material.

Things get complicated when Jody is paired with porn director Jeff Drake (Matt Davis), a filmmaker who once had his own dreams of making 'real' films, but has given up on himself. In Jody, he sees the idealism he has lost, while Jody starts to embrace her sexuality as she gets aroused by the erotic material she is forced to watch.

What follows is Jeff and Jody's unlikely and heated pairing - as they work together, their love-hate battle of the sexes plays out against the provocative back-drop of the adult film business. A classic struggle between good girls and bad girls, art and commerce, idealism and selling out, "Finding Bliss" is a hilarious tale of self-discovery.
