Once in awhile a film comes along that, for various reasons, you just can’t help but be interested in. Love Ranch is one of those films. Directed by Taylor Hackford and featuring an eclectic and awesome cast which includes Helen Mirren, Joe Pesci, Gina Gershon, Taryn Manning, Scout Taylor-Compton, Bai Ling, MC Gainey and Bryan Cranston, the film looks to be one I won’t want to miss.
In case you’re not familiar with Love Ranch it tells the intriguing story of Grace Bontempo (Mirren) and Charlie Bontempo (Pesci), the husband and wife team who own and run Nevada’s first legalized brothel. Yes, that’s right, Mirren and Pesci play a husband and wife who are the founders of the first brothel in Nevada. But wait, it gets better.
Their lives are suddenly altered when a world famous heavy weight boxer is brought to the Ranch to train as part of Charlie’s entrepreneurial empire. Of course, as they often do, plans go awry when Bruza comes between Grace and Charlie and creates a love triangle that erupts into uncontrollable passion and murder. Uncontrollable passion and murder? Yes indeed, sign me up.
