When a change of circumstances leaves Miriam unable to pay her college tuition, she makes a surprising decision: to start performing in adult films, using the pseudonym Belle Knox. Miriam lies to her family and her friends at school, keeping her double life a secret. But soon rumours spread and Miriam becomes the subject of vicious online attacks and unwanted attention. Miriam fights back: she talks to the media, saying her new line of work empowers her as a feminist. But her confident stand has unintended consequences. Miriam is shunned by her conservative family and her colleagues in the adult film world. One impulsive decision has quickly spiralled out of control - and Miriam's problems are just beginning.

TaryBiggBall It was OK. I don't see why everyone loves it so much. It wasn't very smart or deep or well-directed.
Forumrxes Yo, there's no way for me to review this film without saying, take your *insert ethnicity + "ass" here* to see this film,like now. You have to see it in order to know what you're really messing with.
Fairaher The film makes a home in your brain and the only cure is to see it again.
Brendon Jones It’s fine. It's literally the definition of a fine movie. You’ve seen it before, you know every beat and outcome before the characters even do. Only question is how much escapism you’re looking for.
adogsmother She decides to do porn rather than take student loans because she doesn't want to have to pay back the loans. How can one have any sympathy for this character. Turned off movie after 30 minutes. Offensive message.
micciknese * Spoiler alertI'm 15 minutes into the movie and I want to smack her. She was offered a full ride to college, but went to a different school she couldn't afford? While I understand not wanting a bunch of loans I am not sure choosing to do porn is a better choice. I am going to finish watching it, but so far I am just annoyed at what a spoiled brat she seems to be.
DilbertW01 I watched this movie and was absolutely speechless. This movie is a shining example of why so many of the young women of today are so messed up in the head. They have confused women empowerment with "I will do what I want to do, and you WILL ACCEPT it no matter what! If you don't accept it, I am the pathetic victim for YOUR lack of acceptance and tolerance".This whole movie is the young girl making bad choice after bad choice and then crying that everybody will not just accept what she is doing. It is really pathetic. I love the way that she tries to justify the porn industry as some liberal feminist playbook move. Last I checked, most liberal feminists DESPISE the porn industry exactly for what some women are subjected to by it.I also did not appreciate the portrayal of conservatives, Catholics or the southern states. They are portrayed as the great evil in this movie for not accepting her stupid decisions. They even made the mother at the hotel checkout desk for wanting to protect her family / children from the smut convention in the hotel as a horrible woman. Well, motherhood, you sure took it right up the keister on that one from Lifetime.The most disturbing part is the ending. When she says that she is going into politics. Great. Just what the democrat party needs. Another scummy, liar spouting views about women's rights while degrading women in one of the worst ways (i.e. Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner, Elliott Spitzer and too many to list here). It is no wonder so many of these young ladies are coming out of college spewing the crap like that which is portrayed in this movie. I have a relative who has recently graduated college. He didn't date much in college because so many of the girls were just like this idiot in the movie. He has met a young lady who doesn't believe being a strong minded woman means having to subscribe to the Hilary Clinton / Gloria Steinem handbook. It also does not mean being a strong woman means that all men should be weak-minded wimps. She also does not think it is necessary to cut his testicles off to be a strong woman.Avoid the piece of crap. It is not even the usual preaching of political correctness that Lifetime spews out of its bowels.Addendum: I thought about this after my original review. Many of the liberal feminists who have reviewed this laughable piece of crap try to justify the actress and her involvement with the porn industry. What makes it hypocritical at its worst is that these are the same feminists who will protest outside of Hooters saying that girls working there are being exploited as sex objects...... huh????? I would rather see my daughter working at Hooters while she is working through college instead of doing porn, endangering her life, risking pregnancy or catching a lethal disease. Then again, liberal feminism, like most of the liberal / progressive / statist agenda is based on hypocrisy.
Mike Hunt After watching the movie then reading about Belle Knox, I realized the majority of the movie was made up in an attempt to make her look like a victim. Then again, it was a Lifetime movie and they usually try to paint the woman as the victim, so that shouldn't surprise anyone. There was no mention of mental illness or her being a cutter, and in reality, that was the truth. They made her out to be this good little Catholic girl, and that couldn't be further from the truth. She has scars all over her legs from where she used to cut herself, so there's obviously something wrong with her mind. No mention of that at all. I guarantee the scene where the guy magically gets into her hotel room by telling the front desk "they were friends" is completely made up. No hotel would just let someone in a room because they claim to be friends with the person staying there. They would at least call the room and try to verify what the guy said. Don't waste your time with this.
