Storyline

This is a serious attempt to look into the lives of three different woman that come together as roommates in New York. Each of them were attempting to step out of their old, abused selves and start new lives. Although they try to support each other's goals, their old lives creep back into their work, relationships, and apartment. They meet abusive men just as before. However, this time, each is affected differently. One falls back into her old ways, one finds her dream, and the third manages to keep an even keel, only to end up looking for two new roommates to start over again. Written by Don

One of the best porn movies ever made
27 June 2000 | by (San Jose, CA) – See all my reviews

This movie has a well-told story about real characters who grow and change, portrayed with (mostly) credible performances. Veronica Hart is a good actress by mainstream, let alone porn standards. Music is even appropriate to the action most of the time. It lacks many of the traditional porn cliches such as sex scenes that have no connection to the story, and external come shots. In short a well-made movie with explicit sex. It isn't Schindler's List but it's better than a lot of mainstream movies that had 100 times its budget.
