Recently retired from the adult film industry, superstar Elektra Luxx (Carla Gugino) is pregnant with the child of late rock star Nick Chapel. She is trying to make ends meet by teaching a community college sex education class aimed at housewives when a figure from her past, flight attendant Cora (Marley Shelton), approaches her with a proposition. In exchange for the (stolen) lyrics to Nick Chapel's last record, all of which is about Elektra, Cora needs Elektra to seduce her fiancée. Elektra reluctantly agrees to do this favor, setting in motion a series of hilarious events which will see her come face to face with detectives, sex bloggers, emotionally unstable neighbors and the Virgin Mary (Julianne Moore) herself as she wrestles with the prospect of motherhood and tries to become a person of substance.
Elektra Luxx was released March 11th, 2011 and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Carla Gugino, Ermahn Ospina, Jake Hames, Patrick Kocou, Kathleen Quinlan, Melissa Stephens, Susie Goliti. The film is directed by Sebastian Gutierrez.
