The Escort is about a french man who leaves his family and flees to London.While writing his book there he meets a charismatic Irish cafe owner by day and male esort by night.He introduces the french man into his world of sex and drugs.Pierre (the french man),finds himself working in a world he loves,being paid to make love to married and beautiful woman,but then his world is turned upside down when he realises the consequences.
The Escort is a very fine film.It is a very dark drama,comes across as a pornographic movie full of nothing but sex,but anyone expecting this is wrong.There is an amount of sex in the film,but it is very brief. The movie exposes the world of prostitution involved around London. It is disturbing how you see married woman paying for another man to come and have a threesome with their own partner or a married woman paying for sex because her husband doesn't satisfy her. The Escort will teach you alot. I rate 4/5.
