Chelsea (Sasha Grey) is a high-priced $2,000-an-hour call girl in Manhattan, offering a 'girlfriend experience': she'll dress with the client in mind, go to dinner and a movie, listen attentively to talk about work and finances, and she'll provide sex. It's October, 2008: a presidential election nears and the economy is in free fall. She has a boyfriend, Chris (Chris Santos), who's a personal trainer. We are shown five non-consecutive days in Chelsea's life. She's working on her Web page, talking to image consultants, and being interviewed by a reporter. She asks clients when their birthdays are and uses that for an astrological prediction. She's drawn to a new client, a writer from L.A. Should she break her rules for him? What if it risks her relationship with Chris? Should she invest in gold? Written by

I was curious to see "The Girlfriend Experience", mostly because of the marketing related to the name of the porn star Sasha Grey in the lead role. This "actress" could be a good choice to perform the expensive escort girl Chelsea, who works in Manhattan offering her services to upper-class clients, most of them worried about the present American economical crisis. Unfortunately this movie about sex without sex is dull and pointless, with a boring and lame screenplay and terrible acting. At least, Steven Soderbergh does not waste talented actors and actresses in this movie, like he did in "Full Frontal", and that is the only merit of this decadent director in this pretentious flick. My vote is one.
