‘The Girlfriend Experience’ Trailer: Sasha Grey All Grown Up

For months, I’ve been touting the many skills of Sasha Grey — not just on this website, although there’s been plenty of that, but to friends, roommates, grandparents, and trees. She has a storied history at BlackBook, from provocative poolside photoshoots, to groundbreaking (and heartbreaking) Twitter interviews. Now, with the release of the trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience — in which Sasha stars as a high-priced New York escort — I fear that our preciously taboo porn star will be lost forever, set adrift into the mainstream. The dialogue-free trailer doesn’t tout Grey’s acting abilities, but when it comes to staring longingly into the existential void in the back of a town car on her way to service a lonely (and lucky) millionaire, Grey gives an Oscar-worthy performance. And kudos Mr. Soderbergh on that score. We’ll miss you Sasha. Trailer after the jump.
