NEWS: PLEASURE, Adult Film Industry Film Drama, Dropped by A24, Acquired by NEON


Pleasure, directed by Ninja Thalberg, chronicling the life of a Swedish girl, Bella Cherry, who comes to LA to start a life in the porn industry, was originally purchased by indie powerhouse A24 out of Sundance 2021. A24 originally planned on releasing an unrated and R rating in theaters in late 2021. But news came out today that Neon has purchased the film from A24 for an unrated release in 2022.

Newly arrived Swedish transplant Bella Cherry coyly announces to an airport immigration official that she’s come to Los Angeles for “pleasure,” but upon her subsequent dive into the world of adult entertainment, she soon realizes it is clearly business. Though she warms to the friendly affirmations of the more seasoned girls, eager-but-green Bella relies on her instincts to navigate her experiences with predatory managers, male-dominated sets, and backbiting competitors.
