not perfect but still a very good film
12 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure why this film got so little attention or why the heartfelt performance by Stacey Dash went completely unnoticed in this movie. The film was not perfect with a few of the scenes feeling a bit unclear and rushed, but I thought it was a unique story with interesting characters. I liked the way the film not only showed feeling of helplessness one might feel being in trouble and alone in a country that is not your own, but made some strong statements about American culture and how our justice system could care less about the well being of our nation's youth until sex is involved in someway. I thought the acting was superb in this film throughout but I really loved the way Stacey Dash played Minnie showing a street smart young girl that was still vulnerable and sensitive. Not a perfect film, but definitely enjoyable.
