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.

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

The movie ignores these details which are usually important for a character study.
I know that this film is getting some heat from Hooker communities as well for it's misrepresentation of certain "Johns"... (http://www.naughtyreviews.com/forum/hobbyist-hangout/girlfriend- experience-and-escort-review)
