A24 Lands 2021 Sundance Drama ‘Pleasure’, On The Degradation Of Women In Los Angeles Porn Scene
Mike Fleming Jr - February 8, 2021


A24 said Monday that it acquired U.S. rights to the Ninja Thyberg-directed 2021 Sundance Film Festival drama Pleasure. This was a film that had been announced as a Cannes title for 2020 before the fest was canceled because of Covid, and made its debut as part of virtual Sundance.

The drama stars Sofia Kappel as an aspiring porn star who arrives from Sweden determined to become a big star. While the drama’s point is to recognize the rape culture and degradation that women are put through in that line of business in Los Angeles, the film itself is about as close to a porn film as any that has been released theatrically in recent memory, with complete nudity and simulated sex that is shocking.

A24 will release the full uncensored version alongside a new R-Rated version later this year.

The film is produced by Eliza Jones, Markus Waltå, and Erik Hemmendorff.

CAA Media Finance brokered the deal alongside Versatile, who is also handling international rights. Executive producers are Pape Boye and Violaine Pichon of Versatile. Co-producers are Leontine Petit and Erik Glijnis of Lemming Film; Peter Possne and Caroline Ljungberg of Film i Väst; Anna Croneman of SVT; and Frédéric Fiore and Eric Tavitian of Logical Pictures.

Wow, didn't even have to assume this time. Had a feeling it would have to be censored for an R rating based on what it's about.

How did they wrangle this from A24? Were they not willing to hold it or no?

So by "uncensored," are they going to show the actual penetration? Like that French film Bas Moi?

I saw this film last Wednesday on a preview in Stockholm. Director Ninja Thyberg attended for Q&A after the screening. She's been very active in her opposition to the adult film industry since early 2000s and this is her first feature length film. In preparation she attended many shoots in LA, interviewed producers, actors, directors etc. Almost all actors in the film are active in the adult industry, although the lead role is played by Sofia Kappel who's not starred in any film whatsoever up to this point making it a very strong debut.

Ninja however made it clear that her research and all the work that went into the film made her rethink much of her opinions. Pornography, as shown in the film, is a symptom of a patriarchy and not the other way around. Once the camera is put behind the set, you quickly realize that Ninja is undressing the industry and showing its dirty face. Women are portrayed as strong individuals, fully aware of how they're exploited rather than victims. At the same time, Ninja never gets sentimental or tries to tell her morals to the viewer. We are left with open questions that everyone where everyone will reflect different on.

I obviously saw the uncensored version and this is a very graphic film. Full nudes with clear focus on genitals is common from start to finish. Masturbation is frequent. BDSM and rape scenes also occurs. There's no penetration in picture however but some scenes are extremely disturbing. This is not for the faint of heart, but even so I still think you've got much to win by giving it a watch.

Nissling approves.
