LOS ANGELES — “I Melt With You,” the Magnolia Pictures indie-drama starring former porn queen Sasha Grey and Hollywood A-listers Jeremy Piven, Rob Lowe, Thomas Jane, Christian McKay and Carla Gugino, arrives on DVD and Blu-ray disc today.
Directed by Mark Pellington ("Arlington Road") from a script by Glenn Porter, “I Melt With You” follows four male friends in their 40s as they get away to Big Sur to do drugs and cavort with loose women, bringing forth potentially dangerous consequences to each.
Grey plays Raven, a hardcore party girl who lures one of the friends into an otherworldly type of bisexual threesome.
The 23-year-old “thinking man’s porn star” told Maxim.com, “It was kind of a last-minute audition and they called me in, so I hadn’t even read the script yet. On the set I learned that it wasn’t a face-value character. She becomes a grim reaper, so that was something I learned on the spot.”
