If you're looking for car chases, shoot-outs, or explosions, avoid this movie. If you enjoy Chekhovian tragicomedy you might enjoy it. It's a niche movie.

This movie was terrible. “Dumb, Boring and Stupid” Waste of time - Waste of Electrical power. It would be a waste of money to buy. "I fast forwarded all the way."

I agree with Joseph below... I took this out despite the doubts that such the leading actress genertated in my mind thinking that the theme being provocative it would open up some interesting plot lines... and was dissapointed. I am not even sure it was Mrs. Grey's fault either... the screen-play and the direction where terrible and at the end I think the latter two should carry the bulk of the blame for this being such a poor picture. A "one star" rating would seem generous to me.

Being a big fan of Sasha Grey, I liked this movie. I thought it was pretty interesting. It was a little slow at times, but not bad.

Very boring. Not interesting at all. They didn't really explore the subject of the movie.

This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, but it moves way to slow even for as short as it is. Sasha Grey should stick to her porn movies as there acting seems to be better than this movie.

The movie is dull but sustains just enough interest to watch till the end.

Interesting, dispassionate, modern-day take on a young, higher-end prostitute & her clients. But if titillation's your goal, don't bother, because this film isn't remotely erotic.

Chelsea (Sasha Grey) is a high-priced $2,000-an-hour call girl in Manhattan, offering a 'girlfriend experience': she'll dress with the client in mind, go to dinner and a movie, listen attentively to talk about work and finances, and she'll provide sex. It's October, 2008: a presidential election nears and the economy is in free fall. She has a boyfriend, Chris (Chris Santos), who's a personal trainer. We are shown five non-consecutive days in Chelsea's life. She's working on her Web page, talking to image consultants, and being interviewed by a reporter. She asks clients when their birthdays are and uses that for an astrological prediction. She's drawn to a new client, a writer from L.A. Should she break her rules for him? What if it risks her relationship with Chris? Should she invest in gold?

Chelsea: Sometimes clients think they want the real you, but at the end of the day, they say they don't. They want what... they want what you want to be. They want you to be something else. They don't want you to be yourself. Interviewer: Suppose I'm that rare client that really wants to... Chelsea: If they wanted you to be yourself, they wouldn't be paying you.
