‘Lefty’ is Porn’s Answer to ‘Rocky’ and ‘Raging Bull’

“Everybody has a plan till they get punched in the mouth,” said Mike Tyson. You never know when life is going to throw you a savage left hook, and it’s just that brutality and unpredictability that Dana Vespoli explores in her new movie Lefty. The Sweetheart Video feature tells a steamy all-girl porn story set in the hard-scrabble world of boxing.

“I had watched Raging Bull, the Rocky movies and then the Antoine Fuqua movie Southpaw, as well as several boxing documentaries,” Vespoli said in a press release. “I was fascinated at how most of these fighters had come from difficult circumstances, and boxing, as brutal of a sport as it may be, was nothing compared to the day-to-day struggle of growing up in poverty, and/or victims of abuse. Boxing was a way out, or a way to provide for their families, as was the case with Manny Pacquiao. In a lot of ways, these boxing stories are quintessential American Dream stories, and I wanted to create a story like that for a female boxer.”

Mile High’s Jon Blitt saw potential in the project right away. “When Dana first pitched us on this movie, we could tell she was deeply passionate about the project,” he said. “Mile High is always willing to invest in porn that digs deeper than the surface of sex, providing a compelling story, which captivates viewers. Lefty is an amazing film, and I know fans and critics will be blown away.” (Porn fans should also watch for an appearance by vintage star Veronica Hart, a.k.a. Jane Hamilton, in a non-sex role.)
