Opinion about the main character: Julia Roberts plays the role of a prostitute in such a way that we can still believe in her innocence

The review of this Movie prepared by Dominique Etienne a Level 1 Blue Jay scholar

Edward (Richard Gere) is a rich business man in Los Angeles temporarily for work. Vivian (Julia Roberts) is a down-on-her-luck prostitute unsatisfied with her life. After picking up Vivian one night, Edward asks Vivian to stay with him for the remainder of the week to accompany him at business functions. The working relationship, however, changes during the week into "something more". A modern Cinderella story, Pretty Woman is the ultimate romantic comedy.
The review of this Movie prepared by Samantha

In Julia Roberts' breakout movie, she plays a hooker hired by a businessman (Richard Gere) to spend a weekend in Beverly Hills. The sex scenes are sure to arouse you, and Roberts and Gere display delightful chemistry together. Even the soundtrack says it all, because it includes the Roy Orbison song that lent its title to this 1980s classic.

Prostitute Vivian Ward (Roberts) is hired for a week to accompany wealthy business executive Edward Lewis (Gere). At first, all Vivian has to do is seduce and obey Lewis. However, they eventually fall in love. This is a very sweet romantic film displaying romance problems due to social class.
