Thought provoking
7 November 1998 | by See all my reviews

I live in a collage like set up with 45 others, and was watching this with 4 people in the common room. By the end of the movie though, there was about 20 people in the room in uproar about the film, what it portrays, who was wrong, who was right, drugs, sex - everything! It just one of those movies that everyone has an opinion on. The movie follows the life of an underage prostitute. There are basically two stories shown at once in the movie - one showing why she is like she is, and one showing what she is trying to do about it. Although there are not really any graffic sex scenes in the movie, it is more what is insinuated that might make it offensive to some. I recommend it to anyone who wants to see the darker side of the streets. The really scary thing about the movie is that the story was apparently inspired after interviews with some underage prostitutes on the street! 9 out of 10.
