In LOVE RANCH, a fictional story that draws on many truths about Nevada’s extremely successful Brothel Industry, Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci star as Grace and Charlie Bontempo, a husband/wife team who own and run one of Nevada’s first legalized brothel ranches. Their lives are irrevocably altered when Armando Bruza (Sergio Peris-Mencheta), a world famous heavy weight boxer from South America, is brought to the Ranch to train as part of Charlie’s ever expanding entrepreneurial empire. Plans quickly go awry when Bruza comes between Grace and Charlie as an unforeseen romantic triangle develops that erupts into uncontrollable passion and murder.

Set in the mid-1970s, depicting larger than life personalities living on the edge, LOVE RANCH is an explosive, bittersweet love story that turns tragic when these tough, cynical professionals lose control and cross the line from business to personal. LOVE RANCH is a story of raw emotions in a world where boxing and prostitution intersect from critically acclaimed director Taylor Hackford. The film is written by Mark Jacobson, a prolific journalist whose magazine stories have been adapted to other media, including a piece on Frank Lucas that was the basis for the film “American Gangster.”

LOVE RANCH opens in Washington, DC on Wednesday, June 30.
