Angelika New York: Q&A with Filmmaker Ninja Thyberg Saturday 5/7 following the 7pm show


20-year-old Linnéa leaves her small-town life in Sweden for LA, and adopts the name Bella Cherry with dreams of becoming an adult film star. Soon she’ll come to learn that fame won't come easy, as she harnesses her ambition and cunning to rise to the top of this mesmerizing and singular world. Starring Sofia Kappel and directed by Ninja Thyberg in both of their feature film debuts! Hollywood Reporter describes it as “Grounded in years of meticulous research into the porn scene and cast with actors drawn entirely from that world except for Kappel herself, Pleasure is very persuasive in its evocation of the milieu.”
