Amongst highly-touted summer fare this weekend, Taylor Hackford's smaller, more serious Love Ranch sees limited release on June 30th. The film stars Helen Mirren, Joe Pesci and Gina Gershon in a story that seems to be reminiscent of rise-and-fall gangster epics like Casino or Goodfellas.
In Love Ranch, a fictional story that draws on many truths about Nevada's extremely successful Brothel Industry, Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci star as Grace and Charlie Bontempo, a husband/wife team who own and run one of Nevada's first legalized brothel ranches. Their lives are irrevocably altered when Armando Bruza (Sergio Peris-Mencheta), a world famous heavy weight boxer from South America, is brought to the Ranch to train as part of Charlie's ever expanding entrepreneurial empire. Plans quickly go awry when Bruza comes between Grace and Charlie as an unforeseen romantic triangle develops that erupts into uncontrollable passion and murder.
