Madonna's directorial debut, FILTH AND
WISDOM, is a hilariously sexy tale of three roommates who
must delve into mischievous and naughty behavior in pursuit
of bigger and brighter futures. A Ukrainian immigrant, A.K.
(Eugene Hutz), finances his dreams of 'trans-continental
superstardom' with his band, Gogol Bordello, by turning
tricks as a role-playing cross dresser. As A.K. literally
whips the privileged of London into shape, he also secretly
pines for the object of his affection, Holly (Holly Weston),
an aspiring ballerina looking for her big break while
moonlighting as a slippery stripper. Meanwhile, Juliette
(Vicky Mclure) steals medicine from her pharmaceutical job
in hopes of quenching her dreams of helping Africa's youth.
FILTH AND WISDOM is every bit as erotic and playful as it is
poignant and touching, revealing the universal struggles we
all face in our pursuits of happiness.
