The Girlfriend Experience Film Locations

8 March 2013

Film location from the 2009 Drama, The Girlfriend Experience starring actress Sasha Grey, better known for her work in the adult film industry will be posted this weekend.

The film was shot in New York City and directed by Steven Soderbergh. A rough cut was screened at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2009, and it has also been made available on Amazon Video on Demand as a pre-theatrical rental. Soderbergh mentioned Michelangelo Antonioni's Red Desert and Ingmar Bergman's Cries and Whispers as influences. The film is also notable because it was produced for $1.3 million and was shot with a relatively inexpensive Red One camera.

The Girlfriend Experience is a drama set in the days leading up to the 2008 Presidential election, and centered on a high-end Manhattan call girl meeting the challenges of her boyfriend, her clients, and her work. Sasha plays Chelsea, a New York escort who specializes in offering the girlfriend experience. She finds that her clients are spending less and less on her services, and are troubled by the financial crisis, a topic they raise frequently in her company. She is also interviewed by a journalist, who quizzes her about her work and personal life.
