Forest Whitaker is the only one of the four main characters to not have blue eyes. He is also the only one to never enter the strip club where Rose-Johnny works. See more »
You can see Forest Whitaker's reflection in glass in the scene where he sits next to his wife on the bench, as if the shot has been taken through a neutral density filter in order to use a large aperture. See more »
But on Christmas Eve, I'm gonna have a lot of very lonely people out of my club. Some even thinking about killing themselves. And they come here looking for companionship. They're looking for a little bit of love. They are looking for a little bit of hope.

It was better than expected. It definitely reminded me of "Crash" and especially "The air I breathe" with multiple story's, drama and the city atmosphere, it has a similar feel to it.
Despite a few REALLY cheesy scenes in the end, it really was entertaining all the way trough. The acting was good, most noticeable by the mesmerizing Jessica Biel and the always strong actor Forrest Whittaker.
Biel has a few nudes scenes in the movie which was done very tasteful and very sexy ! and if you didn't think much of her before, you most like will be in love after watching her dance :-). Too bad this is probably the only thing this movie will be known for, as it lacks serious promotion and probably will go straight to DVD.
Hope it will do good, just spread the word I guess.
It should find it's indie audience I'm sure.
