Chaos and hilarity ensue as fiancees, private investigators, a twin sister, best selling authors and even the Virgin Mary force her to face up to an unexpected series of decisions and revelations.

Trivia

Several times during the movie is mentioned Electra did a lesbian sex scene where she makes love with herself. When people ask her about how this was done, she eludes the question. Later it is revealed Elektra has a twin sister, Celia and they both appear on screen at the same time when Elektra visits Celia in jail and they are identical (apart from hair, make-up and clothes, obviously) so at this point the viewer can deduce the aforementioned sex scene was played by Elektra and her sister.

In the final credits, Celia is credited as played by Taryn Gugino, leading the viewer to believe Carla Gugino has a twin sister but this is false. Celia was really played by Carla Gugino herself and she doesn't have any twin sister. See more »

When A Pornstar Retires
10 July 2011 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Sebastian Gutierrez's dialogue oriented 'Elektra Luxx' is somewhat better than his next film 'Girl Walks Into A Bar', at least in terms of writing, especially where dialogue is concerned. It's wittier, fresher and funnier and fits well with the situations. 'Elektra Luxx' also has a film-noire style feel to it. The story of the title character juxtaposes with two others: one about Luxx's 'diehard' and desperate fanboy blogger Bert who's trying to move on with life post Luxx's film career (she quit) and another involving Luxx's former costar Holly. I thought the latter story, though well acted in by Adrianne Palicki and Emannuelle Chriqui, barely contributed to the film and perhaps it should have been left out as it only slows down the pace. The overall pacing is also uneven. At times the lighting feels excessive. The score is well utilized and pleasant to the ears. Carla Gugino is terrific in the title role and she is well-supported by Adrianne Palicki, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kathleen Quinlan and Marley Shelton. There's also an interesting cameo by one of the finest actresses.

To sum it up, 'Elektra Luxx' is refreshing. It has a novel premise and Gutierrez steers away from clichés. Some good editing was required to tighten it up a little.
