Watch: James Franco & Ashley Hinshaw in Porn Drama 'Cherry' Trailer
"That's an awful lot of money for lying around in your underwear." A new trailer for an indie drama called Cherry, starring Ashley Hinshaw (last seen in Chronicle as the girl), about the sex industry has popped up online via The Playlist. I haven't heard of this before, but it just premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and co-stars James Franco, Heather Graham and Dev Patel in a drama that seems to show workin' in the porn industry ain't that easy after all. Alas, it's not a great trailer, but it is a good introduction to this indie flick. If you're interested based on the title, cast and image alone, then you've just got to take a look anyway.
Watch the first official trailer for Stephen Elliott's Cherry, embedded via YouTube:
A drama centered on a troubled young 18-year-old girl named Angelina (Ashley Hinshaw) who moves to San Francisco, where she gets involved in pornography and aligns herself with a cocaine-addicted lawyer.
Cherry is written & directed by first-time filmmaker Stephen Elliott, a former sex worker who is also the author of seven books. The screenplay was written by Stephen Elliott and Lorelei Lee, a porn performer who is also a writer and lecturer at New York University. This indie just premiered at the Berlin Film Festival this month to mixed reviews, but is still looking for a US distributor, as far as we know. Anyone interested?

This trailer shows nothing interesting. I think I'd rather watch the far superior Boogie Nights for the umpteenth time.

I watched the film on the International Film Festival Berin. It was not as terrible as the trailer might suggest. Dev Patel and James Franco have smaller roles, but the leading lady is quite good. There is a little bit of porn in this "how to become a porn star"-movie. it was entertained, but obviously it is no oscar contender 😉

filmtogo, if it isn't too much hassle can you send me the details of Miss Hinshaw nude scenes or the script outlie. My 17-years old daughter is a fan of her since Chronicle and aspires to be a model like Ashley after graduation. Just worried and wondering if the nudity is explicit. This is my e-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org

This movie does not look like it has ANY layers. It just looks like a completely bland un-interesting version of boogie nights but with a female lead instead of marky marks hammer. thumbs down
