Rating:
R
The Girlfriend Experience is a 2009 film about the experiences of a high priced escort named Chelsea. The film stars Sasha Grey, a well-known adult film actress. But she is no ordinary run of the mill prostitute. Chelsea has extremely wealthy and powerful clientele that take her on long overnight dates that include her attending highbrow cultural events, engaging in upper-class discourse, and eating at the most expensive of restaurants. What her clients don't necessarily know is that she is keeping a very detailed journal about all of her experiences. She has a live-in boyfriend named Chris (Chris Santos) and they always seem to be having complicated relationship problems stemming from her line of work as well as the pressures of his own. Throughout the film Chelsea is being interviewed by a journalist (Marc Jacobson) interested in her journal. It is through these interviews that her scandalous encounters are unveiled and we get a glimpse at the life of a first class escort.moreless

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    When the turmoil of the last 12 months has receded and the 10th-anniversary deluxe collectors edition comes around, this strange, numb cinematic experience may seem fresh, shocking...

    Fascinating study of free enterprise in free fall. While it may disappoint thrill-seekers, "Girlfriend" should still delight Soderbergh fans and niche auds.

    Los Angeles Times

    A compelling monotony, but one that's never quite pleasure, never quite pain and, therefore, never quite an experience.
