Mikey Davies, aka “Mikey Saber,” is a washed up adult film star who is forced to move back to his small hometown in Texas that he thought he’d escaped for good. Hoping to find his next big break by convincing a young, pretty local woman to work with him in the industry, Mikey’s unique blend of charisma and sleaziness shines throughout the course of the film. The newest film from Sean Baker, director of Tangerine and The Florida Project, is a darkly funny, raw, and humane portrait of a uniquely American hustler and a hometown that barely tolerates him. Introduction by Chandler Ferrebee (VAFF)
