Cookies & Cream review at Rogue Cinema

While we wait for Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience, check out another movie about a sex worker - this one is a real indie - Cookies & Cream (available now on DVD). Here is an excerpt from a recent review of C & C at Rogue Cinema:

"The story focuses on Carmen, an adult film actress. Carmen's life isn't what one might expect from someone in the industry. She has a daughter, does not have a promiscuous sex life and rarely parties. However, like many women, she is looking for someone to care for her. She keeps looking but coming up short as so many guys seem interested in her for all the wrong reasons. She hooks up with Johnathan at the beginning of our film, who knows full and well what she does for a living but continually looks to press her into doing things she doesn't want to do. He expects sex from her early on in the relationship due to what he has seen from her in the movies, and after one night of pulling a guilt trip on her for not putting out - Carmen finds a video camera set opposite the couch set to record. Carmen walks out of his life forever, and it isn't long before she finds someone else. He's an incredibly nice (albeit a little square) guy who seems to genuinely care for her and doesn't push himself on her - but Carmen finds it hard to break through and tell him just what she does for a living. Will Carmen go through with it, and what will his reaction be?"
