Princess, the great difference between people in this world is not the difference between the rich and the poor, or the good and the evil. The biggest of all differences in this world is between those that had or have pleasure in love and those that haven't or hadn't any pleasure in love. I don't mean just ordinary love or the kind you can buy. I mean great love.

"Star Maps" leads us from something familiar--the sight of boys on street corners selling maps to homes of movie stars--to the unfamiliar world the boys really inhabit, a world in which they sell not just maps, but sell themselves to women or men. This world is explored beautifully through the life of one boy. Good cast! Good script! Good directing!
