Richard: "You and I are such similar creatures Vivian. We both screw people for money."
Ruthless businessman Edward Lewis (Richard Gere) hires goofy hooker Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts) while on a business trip to LA. He pays the socially unsophisticated yet street smart Vivian to escort him to society parties and polo matches...and finds himself falling in love with her. This loosely Pygmalion-style fable was the launch pad for Julia Roberts' meteoric career.
