Per its title, director Richard Bracewell's low-key, über-British dramedy The Gigolos concerns itself with two male employees of a London-based escort service for women. The picture, however, places far greater emphasis on investigating the relationship between the men per se than it does on exploring the dynamics between the hired companions and their female clients. Sacha Tarter stars as Sacha, a male escort for a firm that caters to affluent society women. Most are middle aged, a few elderly. He is paid to provide them with classy evenings out, and occasional sex upon request.… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Reps an accomplished debut by writer-thesps Sacha Tarter and Trevor Sather, with closely knitted direction by multihyphenate Richard Bracewell."
‑ Derek Elley, Variety
"Some moving performances but this is somewhat lacking in plot."
‑ Alan Morrison, Empire Magazine
"The shaky camerawork and naturalistic performances mark the film's kinship with quasi-realist sitcoms like The Office and Curb Your Enthusiasm."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"Sather has a couple of amusing moments as the bumbling ladies' man (furiously scribbling notes on how to exude a relaxed air), but overall what we're left with is a very limp portrait of manhood."
‑ Stella Papamichael, BBC
"It hovers on the edge of wordy, stagy self-consciousness, but is rendered watchable by the unlikely chemistry between its two leads."
‑ Andrew Pulver, Guardian [UK]
