Quote of the Movie: “Did I drain these balls?”—Sunny Leone moans after sucking and jerking Ariel King to a pop-shot all over her chest in Scene Four.

Review:
“Gia: Portrait of a Pornstar” is an excellent feature from Sun Lust Productions and Vivid that traces—via a semi-documentary style—the story of a young woman (played by Sunny Leone) who enters the adult film industry by chance, rises to super-stardom, and ultimately falls victim to a tragic downfall. Indeed, there are no happy endings in this gripping and—by today’s standards—trend-setting film. While the storyline isn’t always rosy, there is fortunately still a lot of hot sex to be enjoyed.

In terms of this sex, Sunny is in five of the production’s eight scenes. She has a very good girl-girl sequence with photographer, Monica Mayhem, in Scene One. This one features fingers, tongues, and glass-like dildos. In Scene Two, Sunny and Tori Black—a makeup artist who ultimately becomes her girlfriend—get it on in an exceptional girl-girl romp that kicks off with some steamy setup action through a chain-link fence on a set and then moves to a bedroom for the main activities. There are fingers, tongues, rimming, and dildos all involved here, and—most notably—Sunny takes some anal-vibrator action from Tori which then transitions into a vibrator (ass) / dildo (pussy) double penetration of Ms. Leone—hot stuff! Scene Four finally brings Sunny together with a dick—that of Ariel King—for an on-set blowjob / “69” segment that ends with Sunny jerking Ariel to an orgasm all over her breasts—excellent material for what it is! In Scene Five, it’s once again a Sunny / Ariel pairing—this time as a sort of grudge-fuck after the couple has broken up. The tension here really lends heat to the proceedings, and the hair-pulling doggie-style action and the sexy side-entry variation that the pair employs are the highlights. This exceptional sequence closes out with a pop-shot to Sunny’s face and mouth, which she quickly—and with feeling—spits back on Ariel’s cock—nice! Sunny’s final encounter is with Tori Black again (Scene Six). This time, the festivities are in the good-to-very-good range and include fingers, tongues, glass-like dildos, and a vibrator. It’s certainly not the best segment on the disc, but it’s still more than good enough.

Not to be forgotten, there are three other actresses in this movie who have their own scenes—Breanne Benson, Lexi Belle, and Jennifer Dark. In Scene Three, Breanne Benson gets it on with Bill Bailey on a porno set. The sensual blowjob work here is steamy, and the reverse-cowgirl and missionary-like positions that the pair makes use of are hot, as well. This one ends with Breanne giving good ole Bill a two-handed jerk to a pop all over her face, mouth, and chest—exceptional sequence! Scene Seven brings together the ever-bubbly Lexi Belle with Dale Dabone. For this one, Sunny is a strung-out director, but this doesn’t keep the festivities from hitting the excellent level. The doggie-style and reverse-cowgirl action are the highlights in this one, and the whole endeavor is capped off with a facial and chest-shot for Lexi…which she then does a bit of cum-play with—hot! In Scene Eight, Jennifer Dark takes on Ryan Driller—also on a Sunny Leone set. The blowjob action here is both sensual and erotic, and the missionary-like (vaginal) and reverse-cowgirl (anal) are amongst the high points. The cum-shot is delivered to Jennifer’s pussy and ass-hole to close out this very good sequence.

Some other items should also be mentioned. There are some small—but forgivable—resolution issues in the movie, and the overall running length is about three hours. For those who frequent the ADT Forum, it might also be of interest to note that Howard Levine has a cameo role during the interview portions of the production.

In terms of bonus materials and other options, there is a “Behind the Scenes” featurette that is about 43 minutes in length. There is also a “Photo Gallery” option that plays through a slideshow of “pretty-girl” shots and stills from the production, and there’s an “Interviews” selection that shows some of the interview material that was cut up and used in the film. Finally, there is a “Play Sex Only” option that is as its namesake would have one believe.

Overall, this production has an incredible amount to recommend it. It has a hot cast, hot sex, and a very well-developed plot and good acting. Further, it is fairly unique in its subject matter—instead of being flowery or cute—it can be grim and realistic. I really wish that more films of this type were made. Check it out!
