Steven Soderbergh's Sexy The Girlfriend Experience Poster
The day isn't over yet! Although I missed seeing Steven Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience during Sundance, it'll be out in May, so it's not too long of a wait. Thanks to NY Mag, the official poster for Soderbergh's latest low-budget indie looking at the world of prostitution from an elite call girl's point of view. And it's quite an interesting poster. Not that we haven't seen a lot of other interesting posters recently, but this one breaks all the rules and goes for a look that we haven't ever seen before. In fact, I like it a lot. My only complaint is that you can't really get a good look at Sasha Grey - but maybe that's the point.
The Girlfriend Experience stars real life pornstar Sasha Grey as a $10,000 per night call girl. It first premiered as a surprise during the Sundance Film Festival this year and is being distributed by Magnolia Pictures in May. This is Steven Soderbergh's unofficial "follow-up" to his low budget film Bubble from a few years ago. Neil Miller of Film School Rejects said in his review: "Soderbergh has captured some truly stunning visuals and has delivered a non-linear narrative that is both engaging and not overly complicated." Will definitely be checking this out and for more reasons than just to see Sasha Grey on the big screen.

big soderbergh fan. the narrative side makes me wonder if it could be in a multiple-storyline style similar to his 2001 film Traffic which was very very good.

Love the poster, and I'm so excited that someone's giving Sascha Grey the chance to cross-over into mainstream films. She's paid her dues.

Sasha Grey is a porn star, shouldn't be too hard to get a look at any part of her.
