Abstract:

Molly is a lesbian with an Ivy League degree. Gina plans on opening her own beauty salon. Dawn is a law student. Mary answered an ad to be a "hostess" and decided to try it. Welcome to a typical day in the life of a group of New York City prostitutes. Plying their trade in an expensive, immaculately maintained Manhattan bordello, they deal with everything from the mundane to the profane while servicing men of all shapes, sizes, and odd fetishes. For these working girls, every job may have its price, but every day has its cost. Award-winning feminist director Lizzie Borden (Born in Flames) spent six months interviewing real prostitutes for this acclaimed 1986 drama, delivering an unflinching look at "The World's Oldest Profession" filled with rare humor, insight, and honesty. WINNER! Special Jury Prize- Sundance Film Festival. "TWO THUMBS UP!" - Siskel & Ebert "Fascinating and touching. I was moved by its unadorned honesty." - Roger Ebert. "Revealing and ribald! A sharp-focus look at a much-mythologized world." - Washington Post. "Beautifully realized, on-target. First-rate all the way." - Leonard Maltin.
