Edward Lewis (Richard Gere) is a millionaire entrepreneur. He is handsome and charming, but he can’t handle the relationship with women well, so he broke up with his girlfriend. He was on a business trip to Los Angeles, and at night drove a borrowed limousine into the red light district. Disoriented, he asks a young and beautiful prostitute Vivienne (Julia Roberts), who is attracted by her vivacious beauty and takes her to the hotel. Edward fell in love with Vivienne and tried his best to keep her, but because of the affection, he could only use money as a cover, and let her act as Edward’s female companion in social activities within a week. At the banquet, Vivienne’s charm makes Edward jealous. At this time, Vivian also found that she fell in love with Edward, but the week is about to pass, where should the two lovers go?
“Pretty Woman” is a 1990 romantic comedy film directed by Garry Marshall and starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in the lead roles.
The film follows the story of a wealthy businessman named Edward Lewis (played by Gere) who hires a beautiful and streetwise prostitute named Vivian Ward (played by Roberts) to be his escort for a week. Despite their very different backgrounds, Edward and Vivian begin to develop feelings for each other, leading to a romantic relationship that challenges their beliefs and assumptions about love and money.
“Pretty Woman” was praised for its charming performances, witty dialogue, and fairy-tale-like storyline. The movie was a commercial success, grossing over $464 million worldwide, and has since become a beloved classic of the romantic comedy genre. The film’s iconic scene of Roberts’ character shopping on Rodeo Drive while wearing a stunning red dress and being snubbed by sales assistants has become a cultural touchstone, and the film’s soundtrack, which features the hit song “Oh, Pretty Woman” by Roy Orbison, has also become a classic.
