Storyline

A young woman named Jennefer regularly beaten and tortured by her boyfriend, gives birth and immediately gives the child up for adoption. This sets her on an escape from the lover on the streets of Toronto. Here she meets a hardened hooker named Ola who takes her in so she won't be arrested for vagrancy. Jennefer then decides to take up hooking to make money and has to learn to fend for herself and to protect herself from a demanding pimp named Hassan. When Hassan kills one of the street girls, it pits him against the others and against a detective out to bust him. Meanwhile, Jennefer's boyfriend, J-Rod, arrives in the city and relentlessly seeks her out to take her back... or kill her. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Sisterhood triumphs
7 June 2009 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Lou Diamond Phillips and Rae Dawn Chong, two players known for three names, star in this Canadian production about a woman fleeing from her abusive husband and winding up on the mean streets of Toronto. But neither Lou or Rae is playing that part. Oh come now, Lou Diamond Phillips did do drag in Hollywood Homicide.

Kari Wuhrer plays that part the abused woman fleeing from a real loser of a husband in Joel Bissonette. But before long after she arrives in Toronto, Kari's got reason to think about that old saying concerning the devil you know. She makes the acquaintance of prostitute Rae Dawn Chong who is a street prostitute and pretty soon she'll be required to join the stable of pimp Lou Diamond Phillips. He's far worse than the wife beating husband she fled from.

The saving grace is her relationship with Chong as the two of them discover they've got more feelings for each other than the abusive men they've known.

In fact other than Toronto cop Lance Henriksen the men in this film are one scurvy sampling of the species.

The players all do fine in their roles, especially Phillips who has done the dark side in a few of his movies. Lou was never darker in any film however than he is in Boulevard.

I'd like to say that Boulevard was a serious film about lesbianism because Chong and Wuhrer are a touching couple. But this is a movie that will be far better appreciated at Hooters than at any women's film festival.
