Storyline

Go on a cross country adventure with Cher in her first dramatic film, Chastity. Chastity ('Cher') is a lonely young girl who is hitchhiking across the country in hopes of finding someone to love her and make her forget her disturbed past. She does find love with a man whom she calls Andre ('Stephen Whittaker'). Chastity feels that the relationship is getting too serious so she decides to run. She goes to Mexico where she starts working at a whorehouse, there she befriends the strange lesbian owner (Barbara London). Chastity is looking for a mother figure in the woman, but the woman has different feelings for Chastity. She soon realizes that this is not the life for her and decides to return to Andre and try to start a new normal life. Things are good, but not for long as Chastity's dark disturbed past will never let her feel loved by anyone. Written by Clint Hickman

Trivia

Filmed in Phoenix, Arizona in 1968, a few places seen in the film still exist there. The restaurant Macayo's is still downtown and is where a man tries to pick her up from his car. Encanto Park doubled as Mexico and St. Mary's Church, which she runs out of, still stands. See more »

Chastity is a mixed bag for fans of Sonny and Cher
7 July 2011 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Having been curious a long time about this movie, I finally got to see Chastity on Netflix on Demand just now. Written and produced by Sonny Bono and starring his then-wife Cher as the title character, this film basically meanders from one point to another until an explanation of why Chastity does the things she does is provided at the end. Until then, I didn't have much sympathy for her what with her stealing money, impersonating people and professions, and her running to and from places. And at this point, Cher is not enough of an actress yet to really sell her character when she starts to breakdown emotionally as evidenced by her last scene with that madam. I was, however, amused by that scene in Mexico where she calls the police about a stolen open roof car that she took off in-with the ignition keys inside!-and temporarily leaving the phone when asked about the license plate number. Oh, and I can't believe the way that guy she meets one night that let's her stay at his house would tolerate some of her strange behaviors like her constant turning on and off light switches not to mention running water and turning on the stove! In summary, I give Chastity a mixed review. At least the music score and the songs are pretty good...
