The Girlfriend Experience
Dir. Steven Soderbergh (2009). The hardcore teen queen who took the name Sasha Grey and refers to her porn films as performance art plays a paid escort, $2,000 an hour. A mosaic of short, largely a-chronological scenes, Soderberghs Girlfriend Experience is a film about its own making. Grey isnt the first porn actress to go straight, but she may be the first to allegorize her own situation.
