2009 Tribeca Film Festival Spotlight: The Girlfriend Experience

I've been perusing the long list of interesting-looking movies scheduled for this year's Tribeca Film Festival, which starts this week. Some of them, like The Girlfriend Experience, are already earning some buzz, and I'm anxious to find out what festivalgoers think once they've screened.

Director Steven Soderbergh's latest movie stars real-life porn star Sasha Grey as a high-end prostitute in New York. For her clients, though, she doesn't just provide sex — she creates the whole "girlfriend experience." But at the same time, she has an actual boyfriend of her own. The trailer includes no dialogue at all, just some great drumming in the background. It's all slick-looking apartments, fancy stores, and lovely town cars until you realize this young, glamorous woman is having sex with clients that include men who wear diapers. Yeesh. The movie looks fascinating, even though the subject matter has a bit of an ick factor.

The Girlfriend Experience hits theaters May 22. To watch the trailer for yourself,

Wow it disgusts you? It only disgust me if someone is forced into it or if they actually have a higher value for sex than they let on but they do it anyway. I need to check out the trailer.

prostitution disgusts me, but this looks facinating. I just hope it's a tragedy...

Reminds me of Secret Diary of a Call Girl. Love Stephen Soderbergh's directions. Definitely worth a look!

i feel like i read a book with this story - and i think that if it's anything like the book then it'll be a good movie. i like SS and i think that taking a cross over actress will create enough buzz that it'll do well.

I personally think Sasha Grey is pretty cool, so I'd be into seeing the movie. It looks like a pretty interesting premise.

I might Netflix it. Sasha Grey is an...interesting figure in porn, anyway. I'm not sure what to think of her.

Seems interesting but I was kind of annoyed at the small nod (for lack of a better phrase) to Breakfast at Tiffany's.
