Stark realism Good acting
24 December 2001 | by (London, Ontario) – See all my reviews

This one is a real sleeper. If it hadn't been dissed by one of its stars prior to release, it might have been a hit. The character, Connie, in particular reminded me of someone you might meet in a Tijuana back alley on a dark night. He played his part perfectly.
