Leelee Sobieski Vehicle FINDING BLISS Acquired

Finding Bliss by Julie Davis

Julie Davis’ Finding Bliss, a romantic comedy set in the realm of the adult film industry, has been acquired by Phase 4 Films — which, perhaps not coincidentally, recently bought the rights to another movie dealing with (at least some) XXX material, Brigitte Berman’s documentary Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel. Starring Leelee Sobieski, Denise Richards, Jamie Kennedy, Kristen Johnston, Caroline Aaron, and Matt Davis, Finding Bliss is scheduled to be released in spring 2010.

Leelee Sobieski in Finding Bliss

The following synopsis is from the Phase 4 Films press release: "Finding Bliss follows aspiring filmmaker Jody Balaban (a strong performance by Sobieski), who quickly realizes the closest she’ll ever get to directing is directing traffic on the studio lot.   That is, until porn company Grind Productions comes calling. The studio head (brilliantly played by Kristen Johnston) offers Jody a job as a film editor on Grind’s first ’cross-over’ adult feature, hoping the film school grad will bring a romantic, accessible point of view to the hard-core material. Preconceived notions and judgments fly out the door when Jody falls for porn director Jeff Drake (Matt Davis) and befriends porn star Dick Harder (a full frontal Jamie Kennedy) and the film becomes both a witty battle of the sexes and raunchy comedy dealing with one girl’s search to find love and friendship in the most unlikely of places. "

Also from the release: "Finding Bliss marks the third feature written and directed by Julie Davis. Her last film, Amy’s Orgasm, was called ’candid, funny, and deeply authentic’ by the Daily Variety and Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times called her first film, I Love You, Don’t Touch Me!, ’a debut of a fresh new voice, one that’s honest, sexy, and consistently funny.’  Finding Bliss premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival and was the closing feature at the Gen Art Film Fest."
