Carly (Maddy Murphy) meets men all over town - professionally, to be
their girlfriend for a few hours ... and that doesn't mean she's a
prostitute. Sure, with some she has sex, with some she goes out, with some
she gets drunk, some she just listens to when they're depressed, and one
(Ivan Greene) she even administers a some date rape pill because he asks
her to, then steals his money and fancy wristwatch. Now her actual
boyfriend (Timothy J. Cox) is not pleased with this - but when he asks her
to choose between him and her "job", she chooses the latter, as
in her mind those who pay her for her services show her that they really
want her ...
A very interesting little film that takes a very
unusual look at a topic everybody seems to have preconceptions about, and
finds different approaches to it, without giving any definite answers.
This is also helped by the film's direction, that deliberately downplays
the sexual connotations of the story, even in the sex scenes, and focuses
on characters instead. Plus the camera always stays close enough with
Carly to pretty much force the audience to her point of view, whether we
agree with it or not. And of course, a very solid cast also help to make
this an in an odd way enjoyable little film.
