†. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film The Girlfriend Experience

This show manages to really harness the desensitizing power of a post-modern consumer-driven world by shining a light on something as intimate as sex and creating an atmosphere that renders the very action and the people that buy and sell it into greedy, cold, and corporate commodities. Keough's immersion into the GFE through the series is paced so subtly, and leaves you both shocked and sympathetic for her.
