Pointless, Boring, Uninteresting
23 February 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The pregnant Sasha (Li Ling) travels from Nebraska to San Francisco, California, expecting to sell her baby and she meets her gay friend Boshen (Brian Danforth), who had been the lover of the musician Yang that got Sasha pregnant in Beijing. Sasha befriends the party girl X (Pamelyn Chee) that invites her to attend a party with old men.

It is hard to write a summary of the pointless, boring and uninteresting "The Princess of Nebraska" since there is no storyline, just a complete mess with an unpleasant character. There is no continuity between the scenes and the few dialogs are very poor. Can any viewer explain the senseless conclusion? My vote is two.

Title (Brazil): "A Princesa de Nebraska" ("The Princess of Nebraska")
