Threat advisory: Guarded - General risk of entertaining activities
Set in the weeks leading up to the 2008 presidential election, The girlfriend experience is five days in the life of Chelsea (Sasha Grey), an ultra high-end Manhattan call girl who offers more than sex to her clients, but companionship and conversation - “the girlfriend experience.” Chelsea thinks she has her life totally under control - she feels her future is secure because she runs her own business her own way, makes $2000 an hour, and has a devoted boyfriend (Chris Santos) who accepts her lifestyle. But when you're in the business of meeting people, you never know who you're going to meet...

Special Agent Matti
Uh, ok. There's not much to this movie, just like there's not much to having a girlfriend you just hired. It's all downplayed, as if everyone has a matte finish rather than a glossy one. This is New York: you gotta have something shiny to distract. Sasha Grey does the job she's paid to do but she's been asked to do the wrong thing as her character undergoes very little development. It the protagonist is the same at the end as at the beginning of a film then there's not much point in watching it.
The drama movie The girlfriend experience is directed by Steven Soderbergh and stars Sasha Grey, Chris Santos, Peter Zizzo.
