Loosely based on the true story of Sally and Joe Conforte (here called Grace and Charlie Bontempo) who opened the Mustang Ranch, the first legal brothel in Reno, Nevada, in 1971. Here, Charlie (Pesci) is a swaggering hothead and chronically unfaithful to his tolerant, business savvy madam wife Grace (Mirren). Charlie's latest ambition is to manage hunky Argentinian boxer Armando (Peris-Mencheta) with whom Grace (who has cancer) decides to have a romance. The best thing is Mirren's performance (as usual).
Total Misrepresentation of Mustang ki11ergirl at 2010-10-04 23:16:14
Horrible and thats why it bombed nobody wants to hear about Sally and the boxer viewers are interested in the true nitty gritty about Joe and the girls, the life at Mustang what really happened, Sally was never even there, the highlight and center of the moview whould have focused on Joe, thats what all the talk shows were about, i should know i was on all of them and was one of Joes girls for ten years , this movie was boring and a total misconception of the ranch ,would have done better if the focus would have been on Joe and the girls, the drama behind the brothel doors, the relationship between Joe and the girls and the events there. Sally was never there who cares about her and the boxer, I know the real juicy facts, not only did i work there i was Joes main girl for 5 yrs. i know the true real nitty gritty
