Coming to theatres this Friday from director Stephen Elliott and IFC Films is a provocative look at a life less known ABOUT CHERRY.
This film tells the story of Angelina (Ashley Hinshaw), a young woman who is working a low paying job and still living at home with a dysfunctional family. Her father has rage issues and mother Phyllis (Lili Taylor) finds solace in a bottle time after time. A small victim of this home life is Angelina’s sister JoJo (Maya Donato).
After breaking up with boyfriend Bobby (Jonny Weston), Angelina decides to leave home with her best friend Andrew (Dev Patel) and end up in San Francisco in an apartment with a new roommate Paco (Vincent Palo). Looking for a second job after working as a waitress in a strip club, she ends up at an adult filming interview. It is here Angelina becomes Cherry and begins shooting adult films.
Her first contact is with Margaret (Heather Graham), a director who has a fascination with Cherry. As life settles Cherry begins dating Frances (James Franco), a spoiled lawyer with a cocaine habit who has no direction of his own.
