About Cherry

Part II

(The first part is in yesterday's page)

Johnny's comments:

About Cherry is a drama about Angelina (Ashley Hinshaw), a teenage girl who is looking to get out of her home situation. Her father is dead and her mother (Lili Taylor) is a drunk and there looks like there is no hope. Then, her skanky boyfriend asks her if she would do a porn shoot for a friend of his. She reluctantly accept and things go from there. With her best friend Andrew (Dev Patel), Angelina moves to San Francisco where they share a bed in friend Vaughn's small apartment. Angelina gets a job as a waitress in a strip club, where she meets Francis (James Franco), a sleazy looking sort of lawyer and she falls for him. Angelina sees all the strippers making more money than her, so she decides to start doing some real porn. In porn, Angelina becomes Cherry and is welcomed into the world of porn, not in the least by lesbian director Margaret (Heather Graham) who instantly falls for her and goes well on the way to ruin her relationship because of Cherry. But, as it always seems to be with porn, things start to crack as her career takes off and her relationships with Andrew and Francis crack under that pressure. So, how will Angelina/Cherry get through all this..?

About Cherry is a film that has its heart in the right place, but is too jumbled to pull off the story it is trying to tell. It's neither aggressively for or against porn, which works to the film's advantage, but the stories with the side characters in Angelina's/Cherry's life aren't fully fleshed out and the ending seems to be more self-serving than earned. A failure, but not without its plusses, the biggest one being Ashley Hinshaw, who is not only absolutely gorgeous, but is an definite actress to watch for in the future as she is excellent in this film (also good in her limited role in Chronicle).
