Strictly Sexual now available for early rental on Netflix. The new film starring Amber Benson won't be available to buy for another two weeks (the 24th), but you can rent it right now!

Rated R, for strong sexual content including graphic dialogue, pervasive language and some drug use.

It's interesting to see Amber in a role outside of her portrayal of Tara l wish her great success much as I enjoy Whedon actors gaining a degree of prominence outside of what they're best known for, and for pursuing art for art's sake...this is not my cup of tea, so I guess I'll be skipping this.

And I canceled my netflix account last week.
This really isn't my 'cup of tea', either. But I gave it a chance regardless and was pleasantly surprised at the depth of storytelling (once I got beyond the salacious subject matter implied in the title.) Amber's performance is very authentic and unlike any character I can recall seeing on screen before.
Just added the film to my queue, and it said there's a "very long wait" for it. Here's hoping those who have a dvd send it back to Netflix quickly so the rest of us can watch it.
From everything I'v read, Amber is genuine, warm and very approachable. She's not your stereotypical prima-donna, silicone enhanced actress. She has a brain and she's not afraid to use it. She's also not Tara. Tara was a character she once played, and her own personality is very different. Amber has a wider range than just "shy but moral" girl. Just watch "Chance" and you'll see what I mean.
It's a good job that she's not Tara, otherwise she'd have a bullet shaped hole where her heart should be and an acute case of lead poisoning.

What's this one about then? I wanted to watch Chance, but I couldn't find it anywhere.
Aidan W.; Chance can't be bought or rented commercially for contractual reasons; the only way to get it is with a "complimentary" copy when you buy a still and psoter of the film from Benson Productions. They also sell her second film, Lovers, Liars, and Lunatics.

I think this a relationshiop comedy-drama with a risque~ spin. She appears in lingerie a lot.
