After arranging an escape to San Francisco with her best friend Andrew (Dev Patel, Slumdog Millionaire, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), she soon finds herself dating a coke-addicted attorney and becoming immersed in the local adult film industry, mentored by director Margaret ,who has more than just a professional interest in Angelica s talents. Taking an insider s view of the adult film world, first-time director and novelist Stephen Elliott s ABOUT CHERRY is a gritty, erotic drama featuring an all-star cast in unprecedented roles.

4.0 out of 5 stars the life of a girl named Cherry May 6, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
About Cherry is a pretty sad movie, I think. Not sad in the usual way, though. It's about a girl played by Ashley Hinshaw that enters the porn business because she's looking for a successful career choice as well as a way to make some quick and easy cash. Working in porn -depending on the photo or movie shoot- can reward the actress anywhere from $500-1,000. To a young aspiring young actress, that's a LOT of money. She can't resist. We see the part that I was most curious about- when she first walks into a porn studio and fills out the job application. I've always had a curiosity what kind of questions they ask the girl... and as I'd feared, they're pretty blunt and direct sexual-related questions. Still, it's not enough to discourage Ashley to just walk away. She continues on.

Unfortunately the actress in this movie doesn't realize that what she's doing is widely considered inappropriate to everyone in her life. Her friends, mom, boyfriend... they all want to drill the message into her head that what she's doing is disgusting and wrong, and that when surrounded by people who care deeply about her, she shouldn't be doing it. These people appreciate Ashley for who she is but... she apparently doesn't realize it. She's so determined to become a legitimate actress plus getting a generous paycheck for participating in the sexual acts, that she doesn't seem to care what anyone else thinks. She's unaware that the people who care about her don't agree with her career decisions. The boyfriend screaming "It's DISGUSTING!" during one particular scene is a highlight. He says it over and over again to the young girl so intensely, that she tears up and basically freezes, unsure how to respond.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Need an Easy Friend August 9, 2012
By Mike
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I have no idea what it is like for a up and comer in the porn industry, but I imagine it would be a lot like this story...assuming you're half as beautiful as Ashley Hinshaw. The kind of beauty that makes it painful to watch her be with someone else allowing the viewer to empathize with those who are hung out to dry.

The acting is good and so is the story. For a movie with these actors I was surprised (pleasantly) at how far they were willing to go with the sexual content. I do hope you check this movie out, I do.

2.0 out of 5 stars "Many Flaws" June 12, 2013
Format:DVD
This is a kind of amateurish film, with very poor character development. In fact, we only really get to know the female lead. In contrast, portrayals of the mother, father, boyfriend and sister are empty and shallow. While there is some hint of incestuous abuse early on, this thread is cut off with no follow-up. As for the pornography, it consists primarily of some topless shots and what might be called " dirty talk." A number attractive women are also shown kissing each other. Some males also do the same. The only bright spot in this production is the physical beauty of the female lead. The ending is kind of amorphous and the acting is sometimes hysterical--as marked by over-the-top emotional outbursts. Watching this film probably won't hurt you, but I don't believe that you'll get much it of it either. For those viewers that do happen to enjoy it, consideration might be given to the very similar movie,"Starlet".

2.0 out of 5 stars Half-baked Cherry Pie September 17, 2013
Format:DVD
Ashley Hinshaw is very attractive, whether in clothes or otherwise. This fact goes along way toward making this movie enjoyable. However, not enough. The problem is that the movie is more of an idea than a worked out story. The idea behind the film is that people who work at disrespected jobs (i.e. porn stars) are actually more kind, loving and honest and, therefore, are more respectable human beings than are people who work at socially respectable jobs (i.e. lawyers).

Obviously, this is not particularly true. So, the film maker chooses to bore his audience by overly focusing on the tedious background of the characters. He spends 40 of the 105 minutes on the "set up" before getting to the story proper. This is done in the apparent hope that delaying the action will signify he is portraying "reality" rather than making "fantasy". That hope, however, fails as the movie itself is basically an adult fairy tale.

Which is to say that, except for "Cherry", none of the characters are particularly developed and none has his/her own storyline. In fact, each of them is more a stereotype than an individual person.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing About Cherry May 21, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
You would think from the title that you would learn something ABOUT Cherry. But you don't. Except for one cartoonish scene that lets you know her mother drinks and her father yells, there's zero insight into this or any other character here. Also, if making a movie about porn, why not throw in more than one brief topless scene... it might make it convincing. This is Lifetime Channel fare.
