Dorcel, the major international player in pleasure for all, is pleased to announce celebrated director Kay Brandt, reigning AVN Best Leading Actress Kenna James, and Vanna Bardot have joined forces to deliver The Invitation. A big-budget, 187-minute relationship saga in the tradition of their 2021 hit Sugar & Spice, the latest collaboration from Brandt and the Parisian studio also features Gia Derza, Bella Rolland, Destiny Cruz, Jay Smooth, Jessy Jones, Codey Steele, and Robby Echo. The Invitation is now available on DVD in the United States from Pulse Distribution.
As Brandt’s compelling drama begins, harried Janie (James) is a workaholic whose professional commitments have become so overwhelming she’s willing to take calls during sex with her boyfriend Justin (Smooth) just to keep up with her competitors at the office. So, when Justin receives an invitation from their friends Sage (Bardot) and Anthony (Steele) to join them for a relaxing getaway at their villa, it seems like the perfect opportunity to get Janie’s mind off her career. At least, that’s what he thought…
Already a hit with audiences and critics online, The Invitation received an Editor’s Choice-level rave from the reviewers at Adult Empire, where the VOD version of the film enjoyed a multi-week reign as the site’s #1 VOD title. “The Invitation has the robust run time to contain (quite literally) fleshed-out sex scenes as well as long, frank dialogue exchanges that wouldn’t seem out of place in a sophisticated stage play,” AE’s reviewer observed. “Notably, it also contains very steamy moments in between the five formally delineated sex scenes.”
Of the film’s commercial scenes, the reviewer noted, “In Kay Brandt’s Sugar & Spice, she showed an uncanny knack for incorporating culinary themes into her porn features. This trope returns in subtle but effective fashion in scene one, when Justin initiates his lovemaking with Janie by teasing her breasts with some cupcake icing…It neatly captures the unique physical connection the couple shares, while simultaneously establishing a certain trepidation that becomes key to later plot developments.” (The review can be read in its entirety here.)
“This film is emotionally-driven and as thought-provoking as it is erotic,” said Daniel Metcalf, Dorcel’s U.S. Publicist. “In Kay Brandt’s hands, subjects like stoicism, the limits of art, careerism, and people’s willingness to do things for love are are juxtaposed with the precision you’d expect from a Neil LaBute play or film. And speaking of LaBute, Kenna James’ dramatic performance here can take its place next to Rachel Weisz’s in The Shape Of Things. It’s that good.”
