Goofs

The manner in which Shadow uses her pinhole camera is incorrect. For example, when she takes the picture of Treasure, she removes the cover from the pinhole and leaves the pinhole uncovered for a much longer period of time than required (correct time is 2-3 seconds vs. the 15-20 seconds "Shadow" leaves the pinhole uncovered). In addition, she leaves the pinhole uncovered until Treasure turns and walks away from her, and only then does she cover the pinhole. When we see that picture later, it is a perfectly developed, non-blurry picture of Treasure standing still, facing Shadow. First, the picture would've been extremely overexposed, quite possibly nothing but dark gray or black. Second, the picture would've been blurry from the fact that Treasure didn't just move, she turned and walked away before the pinhole was closed. See more »

Lights Out, Girls!!
29 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

A warts-and-all depiction of life on the inside for women in the United States, so don't expect to see any tellies in cells or parties for inmates here. These girls are tougher than the skin of a burnt jacket potato, with violence and drug taking seen as an everyday occurrence. It's a place where the weak don't last for a day, and the wardens are almost as corrupt as the jailbirds. Into this hellhole arrives Treasure Lee, who has intentionally got herself sent down so she can meet her mum, who is a long term resident of this particular facility. As usual in the world of film though, things aren't as clear-cut as they appear...

Credit to the director, this feels like a real-life, breathing prison, from the raucous games of basketball in the exercise yard, to the torture of being stuck in solitary confinement. I would LOVE our jails here in ol' soft touch UK to resemble this, but alas the yuman rights people would have a coronary. The 'ladies' may be both brutish and distinctly unfeminine, but they have their own unique personalities and this makes them fascinating to observe. Treasure's growing relationship with her mother is also movingly handled, and there are surprises ahead too... But I will say no more. To sum up then: A more than passable TV movie which should serve as a suitable deterrent for any potential American laddettes out there... 6/10
