Two Sisters - one naughty - one nice
27 May 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Above average bad girl film of its time. This film hits all the taboos of a 50's delinquent girl film with themes of broken home children, criminal activities, and sexuality containing hints of lesbian scenes. Travel through the hobo jungles, seedy restaurants, side road hotels, and sleazy underworld of crime and deception the good sister journeys to reclaim her sister that she remembers. At the end of the film You are left with the question of morality presented the first person perspective of two differing sisters. To that fate of the Sisters you can only answer the question on your own.
