The GFE Through the Ages: Pretty Woman at 20
In my latest column at ABC.net, it's Pretty Woman - the biggest grossing movie of 1990 - versus The Girlfriend Experience, a low-budget film about a high-priced call girl.
In Pretty Woman, a streetwalker becomes an economic reformer, showing a corporate raider the error of his ways. The Girlfriend Experience, set during the 2008 financial crisis, has no room for that kind of idealism.
I talked to Jessie Abraham, a Darwin escort with an intriguing mission at SexWorkIsRealWork.com. She has surprising things to say about relationships - and about Cheri, in which Michelle Pfeiffer plays the part of fictional courtesan Lea de Lonval. The comment section is open for business! I hope you'll respond.
