The Girlfriend Experience
Five days in the life of Chelsea (adult film star Sasha Grey in her mainstream film debut), an ultra high-end Manhattan call girl who offers more than sex to her clients, but companionship and conversation--the girlfriend experience.

But, when you're in the business of meeting people, you never know who you're going to meet.
