Sophie Stark begins her filmmaking career by creating a documentary about her obsession, Daniel - a college basketball star. But when she becomes too invasive, she finds herself the victim of a cruel retribution. The humiliation doesn't stop her. Visionary and unapologetic, Sophie begins to use stories from the lives of those around her to create movies. And as she gains critical recognition and acclaim, she risks betraying the one she loves most.
There is something deliciously decadent about the thought of something really adventurous and sexy going on when someone is supposed to be an innocent bride! These erotica stories are certainly not about innocence. You like hearing about first anal sex? Lesbian Sex? Group Sex? Who says that a marriage going on could keep any of that from happening?
Who is the real Sophie Stark? The Life and Death of Sophie Stark is the story of an enigmatic film director, told by the six people who loved her most. Brilliant, infuriating, all-seeing and unknowable, Sophie Stark makes films said to be more like life than life itself. But her genius comes at a terrible cost: to her husband, to the brother she left behind, and to an actress who knows too much.
