Elektra Luxx

This bawdy little film is waaaay to risque for general audiences but is audacious enough for some of you...you know who you are! It's about a semi-retired porn star, so there is very little left unsaid or undone.
  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt ("Inception" and "The Lookout") must have a GREAT agent! He has been in first-class projects since the beginning of his career. His character runs a blog devoted to the life and times of "Elektra Luxx"; his attempts to film and broadcast from his mother's basement are interrupted by mundane tasks, like taking out the garbage.
  • Carla Gugino (she played this role before in "Women in Trouble" AND she shared the screen with Gordon-Levitt once before in "The Lookout.") As our eponymous porn star, she sings, dances, and has an interesting scene where she plays against herself, as her tough twin serving time for a felony. The twin has a lisp and a distinctive personality. This is a great showcase for Ms. Gugino!
  • Kathleen Quinlan ("Made of Honor") graduated years ago from teenybopper roles, e.g., "American Grafitti." Her character attends Ms. Luxx's adult education class: "How to Act Like a Porn Star in Bed."
  • Timothy Olyphant ("Deadwood") was last heard as Clint Eastwood's voice in "Rango." He is hilarious in this one, and appealing as all get out! We're gonna see a LOT of this guy!
  • Adrianne Palicki (lots of TV) plays a dim bulb who is thinks maybe she should see a doctor because she might be "artistic." She admits she isn't "the sharpest stool in the shed."
This is by no means a list of the entire cast. Pretty much every actor has his or her moment to show off and the plot is all over the map, but funny 95% of the time. The Seattle International Film Festival audience laughed out loud all the way through.
