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?
