Julie Moggan's documentary, Guilty Pleasures, is "a sweetly humorous film that takes romance novels and the people who love them seriously."

 The characters in it are three avid readers, a dreamy cover model, and a retired Englishman who writes under a woman's name, according to a

review of the film in Mental Floss magazine.  The review, by Lizzie Jacobs, also said the film would "help you ditch your smug literary prejudices

and understand why a romance novel is sold every four seconds---more often than the average person blinks.  According to the magazine, the

film is supposed to be available at shoppbs.org.
