The Deuce S1-2
Pleasure is a business and business is booming.
Catch up before the new season starts on SoHo
The Deuce chronicles the rise of the porn industry that began in New York City in 1971, driven by the gradual legalisation of porn and a politically motivated effort to ‘clean up’ Times Square. Seizing the chance to cash in on the budding porn business are a vivid assortment of characters, including: Vincent Martino (James Franco), a bartender with a vision and connections; Frankie Martino (Franco again), Vincent’s identical twin, a dangerously freewheeling counterpart to his brother; and Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal), a self-made, on-the-street sex worker eyeing a new career in porn filmmaking. Over the course of the season, viewers will get an up-close look at the gritty world of sex, crime, high times and sudden violence, as the porn business begins its climb to legitimacy, cultural permanence… and billion-dollar profitability. Catch up before the third and final season plays on SoHo.
“What really makes The Deuce so good, though, are its conversations, the cadence and truth of its dialogue, and its bold and vulnerable performances... nothing feels forced, or educational, or winking.” – Collider
