Love for Sale with Rupert Everett

Winner – ‘Presenter of the Year’, 2014 Grierson Awards

“This is the first time I’ve seen the nature and contradictions of prostitution examined with morality instead of moralising.” AA Gill in The Sunday Times

“Everett is never less than outlandish, louche, charming, funny and irreverent.” The Times

“Love for Sale did everything a good doc should: showed you things you might not have seen; told you things you might not have known; presented a personal thesis, but not on tablets of stone; and encouraged an informed debate.” Andrew Collins, The Guardian

Written and presented by actor and writer Rupert Everett, Love for Sale is a bold and highly personal take on “the world’s oldest profession.”

Prostitutes are often seen as either immoral individuals or exploited victims, but in this authored two-parter, Rupert gets behind the stereotypes and hears the unvarnished truth from both sex workers and their clients.  ”Prostitutes” he says,” are the world’s unacknowledged experts on our most intimate desires.”

Rupert is a passionate defender of the dignity and rights of a group of people who he feels have been unjustly stigmatised for thousands of years. In Love for Sale, Rupert offers an unusually truthful and honest insight into the business, and a funny and sometimes angry attack on the hypocrisy that surrounds the subject. Rupert has a natural connection to the men and women who trade their bodies for a living and gets to the core of what trading means, or does not mean to them.

Producer/Director: Michael Waldman; Executive Producers: Neil Crombie and Joe Evans
