Very Real
6 April 2007 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

A woman in a tough financial situation with a deadbeat husband and two children is trying to do the best she can to get by in life. Due to various situations, she ends up working as a call girl for karaoke bars (for those that know Asia, sort of a Snack Bar where the women are requested as opposed to being the ones that run and work at the place).

This movie covers the period of time when from before, to a little while after, she moves into this new line of work. There was no glorification, romanticizing, or exaggeration of her story, yet it was very engrossing. I'm very glad I watched this, for it gave me an idea as to what someone else's life may very well be like.
