Story


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 mainstream film debut), an ultra high-end Manhattan call girl who offers more than sex to her clients, but companionship and conversation - "the girlfriend experience." Chelsea thinks she has her life totally under control--she feels her future is secure because she runs her own business her own way, makes $2000 an hour, and has a devoted boyfriend (Chris Santos) who accepts her lifestyle. But when you're in the business of meeting people, you never know who you're going to meet...

The twentieth film from Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh, "The Girlfriend Experience" is a sexy, gorgeously shot time capsule from the not-too-distant past.

“..a reality TV show with pretensions and yet another film about sex with little sex in it..”
by James Verniere [Boston Herald]
“..Like an X-ray, the focused power of sex, lies and hi-def video cuts to the bone..”
by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
“..Far more attuned to mood than Bubble..”
by Chris Cabin [Filmcritic.com]
