The GFE Then & Now: Pretty Woman Turns 20

In my latest column at ABC.net, it’s Pretty Woman – the biggest grossing movie of 1990 – versus The Girlfriend Experience, a low-budget film about a high-priced call girl.

In Pretty Woman, a streetwalker becomes an economic reformer, showing a corporate raider the error of his ways. The Girlfriend Experience, set during the 2008 financial crisis, has no room for that kind of idealism.

I talked to Jessie Abraham, a Darwin escort with an intriguing mission at SexWorkIsRealWork.com. She has surprising things to say about relationships – and about Cheri, in which Michelle Pfeiffer plays the part of fictional courtesan Lea de Lonval. The comment section is open for business! I hope you’ll respond.
