Why watch this film?
This is not an easy movie to watch, let alone talk about. 'Pleasure' attempts to show, in broad strokes, that everything has two sides - in this case, we are talking about pornography. The story, which seems to be about how a woman can take ownership of herself within an industry made by men and dominated by them, ends up becoming a plot about how macho society and male power hinder any female ambition. A straight-to-the-point movie that weaves a relevant critique about this universe, which grows in the most diverse possible ways. If you are a woman, some scenes may be triggers and even make you reflect on your experiences - since we know that a large part of men are raised by the porn industry.
Bella 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.
