21/22 Hop Film

PLEASURE Official Trailer 2022 1080p

In her feature debut, filmmaker and writer Ninja Thyberg takes a look at the Los Angeles porn industry through the lens of newcomer Bella Cherry (portrayed by Sofia Kappel). Strong, self-confident and determined, Bella embarks on a mission to challenge the corrupt system and become the best at any cost. 
The film is raw but offers both a human and humorous portrayal of a male-dominated world seen from a female perspective. While sexually explicit, Thyberg uses nudity in order to expose rather than titillate. Debuting at both Cannes and Sundance to widespread critical acclaim, it is being released unrated but carries the equivalent of an NC17 for its sexually graphic nature. D: Ninja Thyberg, US, 2022
