Who doesn't want to see a comedy about porn stars?
Elektra Luxx is a new comedy from writer and director Sebastian Gutierrez. Carla Gugino (Sucker Punch, Spy Kids) stars as Elektra Luxx, a woman attempting to transition from adult film star to functioning adult. The quirky comedy also stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception, (500) Days of Summer), Emmanuelle Chriqui (Entourage), Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights), Timothy Olyphant (Justified), and Justin Kirk (Weeds) and features original music by Robyn Hitchcock. The film premiered at SXSW last year where it received rave reviews.
Below is a synopsis of the movie.
Recently retired from the adult film industry, superstar Elektra Luxx (Gugino) is pregnant with the child of late rock star Nick Chapel. She is trying to make ends meet by teaching a community college sex education class aimed at housewives when a figure from her past, flight attendant Cora (Shelton), approaches her with a proposition. In exchange for the (stolen) lyrics to Nick Chapel's last record, all of which is about Elektra, Cora needs Elektra to seduce her fiance. Elektra reluctantly agrees to do this favor, setting in motion a series of hilarious events which will see her come face to face with detectives, sex bloggers, emotionally unstable neighbors and the Virgin Mary herself as she wrestles with the prospect of motherhood and tries to become a person of substance.
The movie comes out March 11 in select cities.
