Product Description:

Spike Lee's GIRL 6 is a provocative examination of the world of phone sex and its effect on one of its purveyors: beautiful, black, aspiring actress (Theresa Randle) is at the end of her rope after having been bounced by both her agent and acting teacher. So she becomes Girl 6 at a family-like phone sex company, whispering kinky sweet nothings into the ears of men; some of the fantasies are dramatized by Lee. Girl 6 excels at her new job, so much so that she becomes addicted to it--and this could lead to serious trouble when she decides to meet one of her clients in person. Scripted by Suzan-Lori Parks, GIRL 6 blends fantasy and reality in typical Lee fashion, resulting in a work that is as much a comedy as a drama. A who's who of popular celebrities appear in supporting roles, including Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Quentin Tarantino, Peter Berg, and Gretchen Mol, giving GIRL 6 an even greater visual punch. The film, colorfully photographed by Malik Hassan Sayeed, boasts a soundtrack written and performed by Prince, adding even more spunk--and funk--to the proceedings.

Plot Synopsis:

Director Spike Lee presents a fresh twist on the behind-the-scenes goings-on at a phone sex company from the point of view of a "nice" girl who just happens to be a favorite caller request. Problems arise, however, when Girl 6 gets too good at her job in this comedy-drama featuring music by Prince.
