Risque and a little sexy, too. Okay, a lot sexy, thanks to “Chronicle” actress Ashley Hinsaw putting it all out there on the line from the looks of it. The film’s trailer makes it look like a young girl’s bubbly coming of age tale from innocent teenager to adult film star, but these five clips from the movie sure don’t look all that bubbly. I suspect hard times are in store for our heroine. (No, I don’t mean it that way. Sheesh, get your minds out of the gutter, pervs.)
Angelina (Ashley Hinshaw) is an 18-year-old on the verge of finishing high school, rushing to escape her broken family life. After reluctantly taking nude photos at her boyfriend’s (Jonny Weston) behest, she takes the cash to skip town with her best friend (Dev Patel). Angelina gets a job cocktailing in a San Francisco strip club where she meets Frances (James Franco), an affluent lawyer who introduces her to a high-class world beyond her wildest dreams. At the same time, Angelina begins exploring San Francisco’s porn industry, using the moniker Cherry, under the wing of a former performer turned adult film director (Heather Graham). But Angelina’s newfound ideal lifestyle soon comes apart at the seams. ABOUT CHERRY challenges assumptions about sexuality and pornography, while addressing the common struggle of finding one’s role in life.
Also starring James Franco, Heather Graham, Dev Patel, Lili Taylor, Diane Farr, Megan Boone, and directed by Stephen Elliott.
