The Man From Elysian Fields

The Man From Elysian FieldsBBB

(out of 5)


plays a novelist whose best work has gone to the bottom of the bargain fiction pile. Having immense trouble supporting his family with his writing, he accepts an offer from a swanky gigolo () to work as a male escort for Elysian Fields, a high-class prostitution racket. His star client ends up becoming the lonely wife () to a rich and famous writer () who doesn’t mind his spouse getting her physical satisfaction elsewhere. When Coburn realizes Garcia’s talent as a writer, he enlists his services to help finish the book he is writing. The characters are sympathetic, but you’re never really sure what the movie is supposed to be about, and George Hickenlooper’s direction is only halfheartedly devoted to the process. The film features a terrific cameo by  as Jagger’s sole client who manages to steal his heart and then crush it.
