UP FOR GRABS

Madonna played Loren in ‘Up For Grabs’, an art dealer desperately trying to sell a Jackson Pollock painting for a ridiculous amount of money to several possible buyers. Loren finds herself in the most extreme and funny situations just to sell that painting, all because she made a ‘deal’ and her husband doesn’t agree.
