Where does using your sexuality to make money end and pornography begin? Can a young woman make it in the adult film industry and come out unscathed, and are the sacrifices in your personal life worth it for the potential wealth and fast track to a better social status? Those are some of the questions asked in "About Cherry," an indie film that takes viewers into the world of the triple-x-rated scene.

Where does using your sexuality to make money end and pornography begin? Can a young woman make it in the adult film industry and come out unscathed, and are the sacrifices in your personal life worth it for the potential wealth and fast track to a better social status? Those are some of the questions asked in "About Cherry," an indie film that takes viewers into the world of the triple-x-rated scene.

Led by Ashley Hinshaw with a supporting cast that includes James Franco, Dev Patel, Heather Graham and Lili Taylor, the film follows Angelina (Hinshaw), an 18-year-old who sells her nude photos and uses the cash to skip town with her best friend (Patel) and escape her troubled life. She winds up cocktailing at a strip club in San Francisco, and soon she's looking for more, and guided by a former performer turned porn director (Graham), she takes tentative steps into adult movies, where the consequences could be more than she bargained for.

We've got two exclusive clips from "About Cherry" to give you a sampling of what to expect from the film. In the first we see Angelina/Cherry practicing her moves in front of the mirror, and in the latter, she gears up to a shoot nurse sequence. Look closely in this scene and you'll see a cameo by Lorelei Lee, an adult film star who also served as a co-writer on the film.

"About Cherry" is available starting today on SundanceNOW as well as iTunes, Amazon Streaming, PS3 and XBOX. If you want to see it on the big screen, you can check it out in theaters on September 21st. Watch below.
