The blurb: A desperate son reconnects with his estranged father to ask an unspeakable favor that will change their lives forever. Starring John Ennis & Stephen Ellis

Be warned: the subject matter of this film is rather shocking. I decided to go ahead and include it on this site because the film is extremely well executed and – despite it’s super weird story – it’s rather funny. It also unknowingly raises some of the basic issues surrounding sex work. Namely, where do people draw the line when it comes to their bodies? Does the amount paid make a difference to how we feel about performing sex acts for money? What would you do for a million dollars? Five million?

Short of the Week has some good commentary on the film here.
