A gritty story with great performances...
23 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Child prostitution from the child's point of view unfolds as if it were a reality show.

Survival sex, psychological and physical abuse play out as just another day around the way. And there's not the usual boatload of back story to bog things down. Just a couple of kids who've ran away from a bad situation at home and stepped into a stinkier pile on the streets. Tamara Hope as Cat is engrossing and seductive. Reily Mclendon as her partner in crime and would-be suitor is refreshingly naive while simultaneously street savvy. And Tom Sizemore as their "landlord"delivers his usual on screen punch.
