Henri Pachard, USA, 1985, Vinegar Syndrome, Cult

Part of Vinegar Syndrome’s extraordinary archive of vintage XXX films.

Wanda (Colleen Brennan, SUPERVIXENS) is a hard-edged hooker who, despite having made a decent living in her trade, cannot overcome her pervasive loneliness. Willie (Herschel Savage, LIPS) is an undocumented migrant seeking happiness and prosperity in his adopted country, but instead finding only hardship and despair. After the two have an unlikely meeting, they hatch a plan to marry, thus getting Willie his US citizenship and Wanda a companion. Their plan seems to work at first, as the couple at last believe they'll be able to find some contentment—that is until money runs low and both Wanda and Willie are forced back into a life of sex and crime. One of director Henri Pachard's (BABYLON PINK) darkest and most thought-provoking dramas, GETTING PERSONAL is a searing look at the American Dream gone terribly wrong.
