The Foxy Merkins
directed by Madeleine Olnek
USA, 2013, Language, 90 minutes
Margaret is a down-on-her-luck, lesbian hooker in training. She meets Jo—a beautiful, self-assured grifter from a wealthy family and an expert on picking up women—even as she considers herself a card-carrying heterosexual. The duo hits the streets where they encounter bargain-hunting housewives, double-dealing conservative women, husky-voiced seductresses, mumbling erotic accessory salesmen and shopaholic swingers. Navigating the bizarre fetishes and sexual needs of their “dates” brings into focus the hilarious and pathetic disparity between the two hookers, as fellow travelers who will share the road together, but only for a while.
