Situated in the middle of the Nevada Desert, 55 miles from the gambling mecca of Las Vegas, is the Chicken Ranch, one of America’s most ritzy legalised brothels.
Staffed by twelve glamorous girls, two madams, two cooks, one gardener, three maids, a black cat, its own plane and landing strip and even some fixtures and fittings from the famous Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Using his familiar fly-on-the-wall filming technique, Nick Broomfield gains a rare and intriguing behind-the-scenes insight into the lives and attitudes of the Ranch’s working girls: why they became prostitutes, what makes them laugh and cry, how they feel about men, marriage, money, and life.
"A fascinating, often hilarious film."
THE NEW YORKER
"An honest, open-ended and fascinating piece of work."
