Pleasure follows 20-year-old Bella (Sofia Kappel) as she leaves her Swedish hometown for Los Angeles. Bella strides confidently into the adult entertainment world intending to become the next big porn star. Explicit from its first moments, Thyberg’s film explores power, sexuality and friendship, adopting a female worker’s-eye view in a male-dominated industry in order to show that the glossy, pristine sets tell a different reality to that behind the camera. Added realism comes from the supporting cast and extras, many of whom are professionals from the adult entertainment industry.
“Grounded in years of meticulous research into the porn scene and cast with actors drawn entirely from that world except for Kappel herself, Pleasure is very persuasive in its evocation of the milieu.”—The Hollywood Reporter
