Regie—Ninja Thyberg
Cast—Sofia Kappel, Revika Anne Reustle, Evelyn Claire

19-year-old Linnéa is leaving her small-town Swedish life and moving to Los Angeles. Not to be an actress, but the next big porn star. What may sound like a nightmare to parents is in reality a real dream for many young women.

Pleasure is a contemporary testimony to the current sex / porn industry, in which young women are highly traded and their bodies are sold – but also much more. Ninja Thyberg‘s empathic view of this industry shows contradictions, longings and sometimes makes the search for her main character understandable. An exciting, tough but very aesthetic film.

The Swedish director‘s feature film debut was nominated for the „Grand Jury Prize“ at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.
