This is a fairly well made docu-drama of the story behind the Marla Hanson knife attack that caught the attention of all New Yorkers including myself. Marla, played by Cheryl Pollak is a girl from the midwest who comes to NY to try to make it in modeling. We watch as she struggles between pounding the pavement following up agency ads and her job as a waitress in the old Grand Central bar/rest.Just as her career appears to be taking off she is brutally attacked by two of New York's ever-present gutter rats at the behest of a psycho Marla had befriended and tried to break loose from.This was a minor media even at the time and proved to be a disadvantage for Marla as you will see in the Trial sequence of the movie. The movie is gripping and well acted and I found myself, as I did when the event happened, sick to my stomach.All decent New Yorkers wish Marla well wherever she is...........I rate this movie a 5 of 5
