After a casual encounter, Richard, a young man on the verge of IPO glory, invites Florence, an exotic dancer, to fly away to Las Vegas. She agrees, but only after he offers her $10,000 and she establishes ground rules. Locked away in their suite, however, they quickly lose control.
A dark erotic thriller might not be what first comes to mind at the mention of Wayne Wang. Worry not: with fearless turns from Peter Sarsgaard & Molly Parker, this serpentine look at sex, stripping and self-delusion is a perfect provocation. Co-scripted by Paul Auster, Siri Hustvedt & Miranda July!
