Storyline

Lahn is a heroin addict who will do anything for his dose. After he robs his roommate, Denis, he shows up at the door of Denis' best friend, Trevor, to see if he will hide him for a while. He, who is terrified of women, agrees to let him stay in his apartment. In return for shelter and his daily dose, Trevor turns him into his slave and then into his dream girl, Dorothy. He uses psychological tactics to twist him into doing everything he asks. Written by Peter Storms <peter_storms@ascp.org>

Trivia

In a 2012 interview with Slate, Elizabeth Banks said that she considered her role in this movie to be one of the worst mistakes in her career. She also said that it was instrumental in her decision to attend drama school, so that she could receive training that would enable her never to have to be in this type of movie again. See more »

one of the best of the year
6 February 1999 | by (LA) – See all my reviews

A brooding film about a dishwasher who uses a junkie's addiction to slowly force him into sexual servitude. It begins first with a simple apron with the name Dorothy stitched in it. As the boundary is pushed each day, the junkie ultimately must dress and act like Dorothy 24/7.

This potentially exploitative film cleverly becomes a character study as we see the trip that the abuser takes to come into the disturbing arrangement that he and his victim ultimately reach.
