Oh, the choices we make.
13 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Veteran director Michael Skolnik joins with writer/director Lori Silverbush in her sophomore venture and they combine to create a work that will stand the test of time.

We all make choices, some good and some bad. But, what if the choices we make are really not ours? What if we want to make the right choice, but can't come up with an option? What if we are driven to make a choice based on our environment? These sociological questions are some that many of us never know as we are given good guidance in making choices.

Life in the inner city is nothing like life in the 'burbs. The pressure to make wrong choice like drug use or sex before you are intellectually and emotionally ready, or dropping out of school are sometimes just too easy to make as there is no guidance driving you in a better direction. You only know one route.

This compelling film tells the story of three girls who have driven to make wrong choices. One doesn't feel things are "right," but does it anyway. Another wants to escape, but doesn't know where to go. The stories of Oz (Judy Marte), Marisol (Paola Mendoza), and Suzette (Anny Mariano) will captive you through the film. Like Oz, sometimes you just want to scream and pound on someone to make them see. It doesn't work. The whole culture needs to be improved and, until that happens, we will have a million more stories like this.

Probably none told so well.
