Description

A raw, vital and groundbreaking exploration of the adult film industry, Pleasure is the unflinching first feature from writer-director Ninja Thyberg. Bella (newcomer Sofia Kappel) arrives in Los Angeles from her hometown in Sweden, with dreams of becoming the next porn superstar. However, as her ruthless ambition leads her into increasingly dangerous territory, Bella struggles to reconcile her dreams of empowerment with the realities of the darker side of her industry. One of the most audacious breakouts of Sundance Film Festival 2021, Thyberg’s captivating debut addresses powerful ideas of consent and agency in sex work, through a fearless and uncompromising lens.
