Fading Gigolo - Trailer
Director John TurturroYear 2014Genre(s) Dramas
Strapped for cash, handsome but middle-aged bookshop worker Fioravante decides to accept an offer of an unusual job from his friend Murray, who recently had a brainwave after his dermatologist and her friend admitted to wanting a new sexual experience with a stranger. Murray charged them a huge $1,000, offering the modest Fioravante the chance to be a male escort for a large paycheque while keeping a portion himself. After realising that he quite enjoys the experience of worshipping single and lonely women in the bedroom, Fioravante continues his exploits with Murray and ends up meeting a particularly shy woman named Avigal. Consumed by loneliness, Avigal seeks comfort and recognition, but just how deep does her solitude go?
This risqué comedy has been directed and written by Golden Globe nominated title star John Turturro ('Passione', 'Romance & Cigarettes', 'Illuminata') and co-stars the Oscar winning Woody Allen in his second acting role in six years. It's almost like a story on the ethics of sex and prostitution, and just how far one should go in an effort to heal a lonely heart. 'Fading Gigolo' has an all-star cast and is set to be released in the UK on May 23rd 2014.
