The acting seemed wooden to me. She was the same person before and after she turns to the world's oldest profession.
OK, jobs are hard to come by, I get that - but then she can't even keep hers. Her uncle runs a restaurant, she could work there too. I'm not saying it would be biscuit city, but there appear to be other options.
So, in one night she becomes a hardened whore - the character never really changed. She jumps right in to a lifestyle where nobody is a real person and everybody wants something from somebody. And she was no different! She didn't need any training in becoming a hooker, she seems to have been born saying "where's my money?"
Pacing was slow and there were one too many "riding behind her on the motor scooter" shots.
Not buying it - a waste of time.
