Storyline

A high-priced call girl navigates the shadowy world of London's sex trade underground in this provocative, erotic thriller. Virginie goes about her work as a prostitute with a cool detachment, trading sex with wealthy businessmen for money, but never getting emotionally involved. That all changes when she meets Rupert (Ash Stymest), an enigmatic stranger with unclear intentions. Risking everything, Virginie plunges into a dangerous affair that tears her between a ruthless madame who forbids romantic attachments and a dark, sexy man who could be her savior or her downfall.

Wants to be a new generation's Pretty Woman.
14 February 2017 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

Strong beginning but a little formulated, which makes it cheesy.

Sex Doll begins as this look into the life a a hooker. We see her engaging with her clients on a night by night basis as if she was working a "normal job" or something. The filmmakers do a good job of expressing her subtle contempt for the old, fat and ugly businessmen she sleeps with for money. The film also goes through how she balances this profession without her friends, family, and other relationships discovering the truth.

But I guess that's not enough of a story for a movie, so they added a part about her relationship with a new potential boyfriend, who is more than he seems. It's not a bad add to the story, but for me it does cheapen what it seems they had been trying to do for most of the picture, or what I thought they were doing in humanizing a prostitute's life.

But overall Sex Doll is a good movie that tries not to romanticize or demoralize the decision this young woman made, only humanize the young woman.
