Word is that P.T. is retiring from the Adult Industry, and L'AVOCATE is a decent enough feature among his swan song releases. His excellent eye for composition (d.p. is Ralph Parfait) and directing of dramatic scenes is evident.
Mainly U.S. cast (though Dorcel regular Liza Del Sierra is prominent on screen) is headed by India Summer in the title role, a lawyer working in a firm with colleague Manuel Ferrara, slicked up a bit for this casting against his usually rugged type.
Liza is a major client of India's, bringing a case of sexual harassment (hard to visualize in the case of such an uninhibited XXX star) against a former boss. Xander Corvus is another soul in the dock, accused (rightly) of setting up dirty photo shoots on location but failing to get signed releases before the cops pinched him for essentially guerrilla activity (in movie shoot parlance).
We're rooting for India to get her apparently guilty clients off, but P.T. ensures that the feature is really about the performers getting off, sexually that is, for our listening and dancing pleasure.
Highiights include a fantasy sequence of Xander humping a beautiful (with fab nipples) girl behind bars, played according to the credits by Katie St. Ives, plus Lily Labeau as a former colleague of Liza's (her testimony is crucial) appearing in a hot threesome in a restaurant kitchen with Mark Wood and Liza.
India is sympathetic as always and her JoBeth Williams-like visage again convinces me that somebody missed (and is still missing) the boat by not casting her in mainstream movies or TV -she's better in every department than so much of the current "respectable" talent (I'm not saying she should have played the lead in GONE GIRL but there are plenty of movies where she could excel).
Major defect here is the Dorcel safe-sex crusade which peppers L'AVOCAT with condoms - one scene in which Ferrara has one magically at the ready in his hand to put on before a torrid sex scene is made even more ridiculous when a continuity error has him delivering the money shot facilitated by an amazing disappearing rubber.
