I WANT THE ILLUSION
on 18 August 2013
Holly Rowe (Viva Bianca) a call girl has saved up enough money for retirement. She is getting ready to go to Paris. Michael, one of Holly's Johns is a married man who has an unhealthy attachment for her. He wants to run away with her to Paris.
Meanwhile Shay (Hanna Mangan Lawrence) is the new girl on the block making money by giving hand jobs to old men while talking dirty (I couldn't believe that is what old men always request from young girls.) Shay doesn't have a pimp to "protect" her. She has been stepping on the other girl's territory without paying her dues.
Holly has a big score and needs a second girl. All the other girls are busy. That is when she runs into Shay (literally) in the street. She takes Shay under her wing. Of course nothing goes as planned and the working girls witness a murder. They are on the run because...? Prostitutes make for credible witnesses and always run to the cops when they see a crime. The movie becomes a game of cat and mouse with some minor unoriginal twists.
What we learned is that all Johns are creepy men who want kinky sex, all prostitutes are reluctant victims, and cars in Australia don't have front air bags. The acting was good. The script was bland.
Nudity (male and female, Viva Bianca,Hanna Mangan Lawrence, Belinda McClory), sex, f-bomb.
