more than cliches about underage prostitution
8 May 1999 | by (Kelowna B.C. Canada) – See all my reviews

Stella is victimized, but uses her anger to fight becoming a victim. "You don't know who I am," she tells her pimp, who has given us every reason to think that his stereotypical view of her is complete. Through flashbacks to daydreams, Stella's life has been an escape from harsh reality. Will she be able to pull off her best trick - going straight?

Lots of surprises from the casting and portrayal of Stella's pimp to her visit with her father. I wish her well.
