Hayley Squires plays leading British porn star Jolene Dollar. Juggling MILF glamour on camera and the reality of motherhood at home, Jolene is a poster girl for the industry. Through her eyes the world isn't defined by exploitation, but by opportunity for working class women: the hours are good and the money is great. But the internet has cultivated a revolution in porn. Producers like Jolene's old friend and colleague Carroll (Rupert Everett) push boundaries further than ever before to deliver something new, something people will pay for in a world where everything's free. When new girl (Siena Kelly) is grotesquely injured on her first day's filming Jolene's life changes forever. In seeking justice for Amy, Jolene takes on the largest porn company on the internet and takes a wrecking ball to her own life. 'Adult Material' is a story that asks vital and serious questions about sex but above all is an entertaining, outrageous and moving story about the irresistible Jolene Dollar.
