A hooker is picked up by a business man and they end up spending a week together, encouraging both her transformation and his.
Strongly disliked. With overtones of all manner of female masterbatory bullshit from hypergamy to princess-saving, this film is a tooth-grinder.
This is a wonderful classic. It can only, however, be appreciated in its context. 1990 was in innocent times it seems.
There are so many things which I found utterly abhorrent about this movie, but the prostitute aspect isn't one of them. She is portrayed as choosing the job, being safe, getting checked out and otherwise being forever-aware of her situation. The character isn't spat upon as it would be in many other movies.
Everything else, however, is all about a woman's hypergamy and a man providing. This grates on me so damned much. I had very high hopes about re-watching this but was let down hard.
