Nineteen-year-old Bella Cherry arrives in LA with one goal - to be the next big name in adult film. What she finds is a world of simmering rivalry and loose regulations. Ninja Thyberg demythologises porn through an honest, scrupulous gaze - moments of abuse and exploitation sit alongside gems of genuine friendship and professionalism. This sense of authenticity is heightened by a cast featuring real-life adult film stars and agents. Confident, explicit and propulsive, Pleasure gives voice to an ambitious and unapologetic heroine, and reveals the realities of a cutthroat, male-dominated industry. (Sydney Film Festival 2021)
