What looks like what might be the most shocking and controversial film of 2022 is glimpsed in the Pleasure trailer. The movie is based on Ninja Thyberg’s 2013 short film about a young woman from Sweden who moves to Los Angeles and tries to become a star in the adult industry. “Pleasure” originally premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, but it’s finally coming to cinemas this year and stars Sofia Kappel stars in the leading role of Linnéa, who works as an adult actress working under the stage name “Bella Cherry.”
Thyberg has said she researched the film by immersing herself in the real life LA adult industry and the film has many shocking moments and most of the incidents we see in the movie are based on things she witnessed. The synopsis for “Pleasure” states that “Ninja Thyberg’s debut feature film ‘Pleasure’ is a journey into the Los Angeles industry through the lens of newcomer Bella Cherry (Sofia Kappel). Strong, self-confident and determined, Bella embarks on a mission to become the best at any cost.” Pleasure co-stars many real life adult stars too.
There’s a been a number of films over the years about the industry over the years most notably Paul Thomas Anderson’s epic ‘Boogie Nights’ that starred the late Burt Reynolds in a return to form but who later bizarrely went on record pretty much rueing the day he agreed to be in the film. And most recently we have Red Rocket which starred Simon Rex himself having purportedly appeared in the genre. The Pleasure trailer though hints at something that may be a bit of an eye opener (with legs following suit!) With one critic describing it as, ‘the lower she goes, the higher she’ll rise. The movie is structured like a descent into the nine circles of porn perversion’…….it’s bound to attract controversy.
Here’s the Pleasure trailer….and we can only apologise for posting this on our Coming Soon page!
