Description - Boogie Nights by Paul Thomas Anderson
'Everyone is blessed with One Special Thing', says Eddie Adams, who is endowed with a rather stunning piece of equipment that enables him to become a shining star in the world of 'adult entertainment'. Deprived of love and respect by his family, Eddie - renaming himself Dirk Diggler - conquers the world of porn, while keeping his innocence intact. As the turbulent seventies turn into the hedonist eighties, Dirk's career goes into a tail spin - but he is rescued by the safety net of the extended family created by hard-core film director Jack Horner. In Boogie Nights, Paul Thomas Anderson has taken on what is regarded as one of the sleaziest sides of life and infused it with an aching humanity.
