Louis Malle, Polly Platt
Drama | Prostitution. 1910s
- Synopsis / Plot
- The inspiration for Malle’s first American film was E. J. Bellocq’s remarkable photographic record of New Orleans’ red-light district, Storyville, in the early years of the twentieth century. A fourteen-year-old (Shields) is cheer-fully sold into the trade by her mother (Sarandon) and becomes involved with Bellocq himself (Carradine), who finds her a compelling subject of erotic and aesthetic interest.
