Here’s a rather odd Screen One film, Two Golden Balls. It’s about an anti-pornography campaigner who has a change of view.
It stars Claire Skinner as Linda Leveller, the naive anti-porn campaigner who’s arrested during a protest, and sentenced to three months in prison.
In prison she’s put in a cell with Kim Catrall, who happens to be a porn star. The prison has surprising loose dress codes.
It’s a very talky, polemical film about women embracing their sexuality and taking control of the production of their own films.
However, it does start Claire Skinner, with whom I went to school when we were both very young, and (as I’ve recounted here before) we used to spend hours writing and performing little plays for the class. I looked on this time as an excuse to get out of the boring lessons. She used it as a training ground for a brilliant career. I’ll let you decide which of us used that time the best.
