BrickFlix Presents
Red Rocket (2021)
Directed by Sean Baker
With special guest, co-star Bree Elrod

May 16 at 6:30pm

We’re thrilled to be welcoming Bree Elrod, whose extraordinary performance as ex-wife, doting daughter
and retired porn star goes beyond acting into the realm of inhabiting — come join us at BrickFlix to find out how she did it!

Red Rocket is a 2021 American comedy-drama film directed by Sean Baker (The Florida Project), from a screenplay by Baker and Chris Bergoch. The film stars Simon Rex as Mikey Saber, a formerly successful but now nearly penniless adult entertainer who returns to his small Gulf Coast hometown.

Bree Elrod, Suzanna Son, Brittney Rodriguez, Shih-Ching Tsou and Ethan Darbone also star.

Baker has “devoted [his] career to tell stories that remove stigma and normalize lifestyles” of sex workers through his films. Baker stated that in Red Rocket he wanted to pay homage to “Italian eroticism” and sexploitation films by directors from the ’70s like Fernando Di Leo and Umberto Lenzi.
