Storyline

Claire Dolan is an Irish immigrant, working as a Manhattan call girl, paying off a debt she owes her pimp, Roland Cain. She's almost without affect, much like the sterile, glass-and-concrete high-rises where she lives and works. Violence lurks just below the surface. Cain can be menacing as are men who approach her. When her mother dies, Claire tries to escape the life, moving to Newark, visiting a cousin, working as a manicurist, realizing that she wants to have a baby, and going out a couple of times with a cabby. But Cain finds her and insists on payment, so she returns to Manhattan. The cabby wants to help: can Claire leave prostitution and find happiness in motherhood? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

very thorough and subtle film
4 March 2000 | by (geneva, switzerland) – See all my reviews

i would like to add one comment to this film, the only one that is presently listed being a negative comment. this is among the three best films i have seen in recent years. clearly lodge kerrigan has a good grasp on what cinematography is, and this film shows his personal interpretation of that very substance. kathleen kartlidge is wonderful and vincent d'onofrio very touching. i do not know if anyone has paid good attention to the soundtrack. it is very subtly constructed to indicate the actresses' mindstates, and it is a very unique way of using sound to add meaning.
