Reviews & Promos:

Movie Overview: Finding Bliss is a sexy romantic comedy that explores the adult film industry through the eyes of an idealistic 25 year-old award-winning film school grad, Jody Balaban, new to Los Angeles. After a year of unemployment, Jody is faced with the hard decision of taking the only well-paying industry job she can get – editing porn at Grind Productions, a profitable X-rated film company where Jody is forced to work for Jeff Drake the charming Herr Director of porn. Like Jody, Jeff once had his own dreams of making ‘real’ films, but now is a hard-worn cynic who has given up on love, art, and mostly, himself. In Jody, he sees the idealism he once had, while Jody starts to face her sexual hang-ups as she begins to get aroused by the porn she so harshly judges.
