The first movie from Kay Brandt, Cherry is largely set in a strip club run the by eponymous Cherry (Judy Thompson). The story revolves around Cherry's failing relationship with one of the women who works there, Harlow (Riley Steele), and the "new girl" Winterlynn (Sinn Sage). It seems to everyone as if Winterlynn might be about to replace Harlow, but it ends up seeming as if the most likely successor is actually Winterlynn's roommate and lover Devon (Celeste Star).
A reasonable amount of time is spent on the story, about forty minutes, but the plot line we just mentioned is not really developed. In fact, we are not sure the movie really has a coherent plot. There are, however, some truly fantastic sex scenes. The best are the third, with Sinn Sage and Celeste Star, and the last, with Ann Marie Rios and Vicki Chase, but the fourth, with Nina Mercedez and Ash Hollywood, is also very good. The last two are both "first times", and the women all do an outstanding job staying in role, which adds a lot to the scenes. A lot of the sex is slow and soft and playful, but it is no less hot for that. In fact, there's a lot of slow buildup and anticipation that really had us squirming.
There is great camera work throughout, with a terrific mix of closer and wider shots that keeps it varied and interesting.
Overall, then, we very much enjoyed this movie and strongly recommend it to anyone who enjoys watching women who love to have sex with other women have sex with other women.
This film was nominated for Best Cinematography and Best Screenplay at the 2012 AVN Awards, where Kay Brandt was also nominated for Best Director. She was nominated for the same award at the 2012 XBiz Awards, where the film itself won for All-Girl Release of the Year.
Scene 1: Lux Cassidy and Riley Steele (♀♀)
Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓
They have sex in a bathroom. The sex at the beginning of the scene is very stylized, almost as one would expect from an Andrew Blake movie. It gets better once the two of them sit down on the edge of the tub and start kissing, but there wasn't all that much passion in this scene, and we found our minds wandering. It does have its moments, though, and we appreciated how much they kissed, and how sexy that kissing was. But it's not until the very end that either of them seems very aroused.
The photography is quite good, however, with lots of shots of the women's faces, and mostly wider shots that give us a sense for their whole bodies and not just their genitals.
Scene 2: Riley Steele and Judy Thompson (♀♀)
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀
Harlow takes a shower, using the showerhead to stimulate her pussy while Cherry watches her. Cherry reaches out and slaps Harlow's ass, then stands behind her and strokes her back, then her legs and ass, as Harlow continues to masturbate with the showerhead.
There's a wonderful sense of intimacy to this scene. It's very sexy how Cherry more or less dominates Harlow without saying very much at all. It's very, very hot.
The photography is once again fantatsic.
Scene 3: Celeste Star and Sinn Sage (♀♀)
Features: Analingus, Cunnilingus Orgasm, Multiple Female Orgasms, Rough Sex, Spanking, Tribadism
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀
Winterlynn is trying to get ready for her first night at the club, but Devon seduces her.
This is a very hot scene, and the extended teasing that leads into it sets a great mood. It's fun and playful and natural, and there's great communication between them. The sex is varied and interesting, too, which is a large part of what makes the scene so enjoyable, even though it is very long. And both women seem to have several orgasms, some of them very intense.
As in the first two scenes, the camera work is again wonderful. They make good use, for example, of a mirror that is in the room.
Scene 4: Nina Mercedez and Ash Hollywood (♀♀)
Features: Orgasm?, Tribadism
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀
This is Eternity's retelling of how she had sex with Sara the previous night while Sara's stepmother (Veronica Hart) watched.
It is really quite amazing how sensuous this scene is. Eternity is extremely gentle with Sara, making very effort to put her at ease and make her first time memorable. It is soft and slow yet hot, and we felt as desparate for Eternity to kiss Sara's pussy as she must have been.
Both women play their roles really well, with Ash Hollywood doing an especially great job of playing the nervous neophyte.
The camera work is again excellent.
Scene 5: Sinn Sage, Nina Mercedez, and Riley Steele (♀♀)
Features: Cunnilingus Orgasm, Orgasm, Rough Sex, Spanking, Tribadism
Eternity and Harlow "initiate" Winterlynn with a bit of hazing that involves forced pussy eating and the like. It's sexual harrassment and sexual assault all wrapped into one. It's not a particularly sexy scene, but we doubt it is meant to be. Given that, the scene is appropriately short, maybe just a bit longer than it needs to be to make its point and advance the story.
Raylene is a regular customer at the club, and she has requested a special dance from Winterlynn, right in the middle of the club. It's all an extended lap dance, and as sex it doesn't really go anywhere. But it has its role in the story and again doesn't go on too long for its purpose.
Scene 7: Ann Marie Rios and Vicki Chase (♀♀)
Features: Analingus, Cunnilingus Orgasm, Multiple Female Orgasms, Tribadism
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀
Marina has been brought to the club by her friends. In fantasy, she gets onto the stage with Nixie. They dance slowly, and then we find them in bed together. Marina is extremely nervous and seems unsure whether she really wants to do this, so the first several minutes of the scene are devoted to Nixie's trying to put her at ease.
It's an incredibly sexy scene, the anticipation building for a long time. It's almost twenty minutes into the scene before there is any genital contact. It is really hot how Marina both wants and doesn't want what is happening, and how intensely she looks at Nixie much of the time. Once they do start having sex, there is a great sense of connection between them, with some very sweet, quiet talking and a lot of kissing. So, despite the fact that it is again a very long scene, it is also a really great one.
Both women do a great job with their roles, especially Rios, who seems as if she might at any minute call a halt to the proceedings until her arousal takes over.
