Birthday Trailer. James Harkness‘ Birthday (2011) movie trailer stars Natalie Eleftheriadis, Kestie Morassi, Richard Wilson, Travis McMahon, and Ra Chapman. Birthday‘s plot synopsis: “M (Natalie Eleftheriadis) is the highest paid professional of the many girls at Scarlet’s, but, even on her 25th birthday, it’s business as usual. M’s trade is sex, but sex doesn’t sell the way it used to; what client’s are searching for, paying for… is love. Instead of celebrating, her day is spent answering the silent prayers of Father Phillip (Travis McMahon), who has lost his faith and providing counsel to her colleagues, the vivacious Lily (Kestie Morassi) and troubled Cindy (Ra Chapman).
Amidst the many dramas that unfold and the demands of the ‘no- nonsense’ Scarlet (Chantal Contouri), M’s secret birthday wish goes unanswered. That is, until Joey (Richard Wilson) knocks on her door; a young man, forgotten by the world, who has never learned to love, or even how to kiss. But Joey also has a secret, it’s his Birthday too, and today M may just discover that even the smallest, most unexpected wish can come true. Birthday encompasses lost love, first times, humanity and the discovery of intimacy in surprising and unexpected places.”
The working girl in “the oldest profession” who wants more is a motif we have seen many times before, most recently in X and Sleeping Beauty. The color palette present in Birthday looks far deeper and darker than the one present in X.
Birthday also stars Natasha St. Clare Johnson, Chantal Contouri, and Vicki Mueller.
