The Girlfriend Experience

My kids are pretty adventurous when it comes to going to the movies with me. They are now young adults, so it is fun to take them to mature films, especially when I visit them in NYC. On my most recent visit, there was a long list of good films to see. I've been reading a lot about The Girlfriend Experience making the rounds at film festivals. I'm a big fan of Steven Soderberg, so that was the film choice of the day. The story of a high price escort, her boyfriend and the folks she meets trying to advance her career, is well acted and interesting in character motivations. There was an emotional factor I did not expect. This one gave us a lot to talk about over cocktails and dinner. Worth a look.

This movie really surprised me, and it was more engaging that I thought it would be. Kudos to Soderbergh for this one. I think it'll earn a good amount of praise as it becomes more visible.
