Claire is bored and restless as a daughter of luxury and wealth. Unknown to her parents, she begins working as a prostitute for a call girl service catering to wealthy clientèle. One of the premier VIP clients who uses this call girl service is a mysterious man named Harold Beck. Several girls working for the service have slept with Beck and were as pleased with him as he was with them. But one fateful night, Claire is selected to spend a night with Beck at his hotel room, and finds that Harold Beck and her father, Malcolm McGrath, are in fact one and the same man... a revelation that will change the lives of the whole McGrath family forever.

An interesting look at the possible consequences of adultery
8 January 1999 | by (Cambridge, England) – See all my reviews

The dean of a university (Malcolm, played by Michael Murphy) is cheating on his wife with call girls. Meanwhile his daughter (Clara, played by Kristin Davis) - who is a college drop-out - is a prostitute working with the same agency that her father gets his girls from. One evening she turns up at his hotel room door, and they find each other's secret out.

Unable to live with the fact that Malcolm is cheating on her mother, Clara tells her and is thrown out of the house. As she is about to go to her best-friend's, she tells her mother that she is a prostitute, and how she found out about Malcolm.

The rest of the film continues to tell how Malcolm's life falls apart, how Clara and her mother are re-united, and ends with them hugging - pretty mushy stuff.

The film is quite well made, and the issues brought up (the possible consequences of adultery, prostitution, etc.) are thought-provoking.
