The Reality
8 December 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This definitely shows the reality of this profession – and it certainly isn't glamorous - far from it. They do it for the money, in most cases to support their drug habits. Sadly, once they have started in this line of work they cannot extricate themselves from it. We only get glimpses of their pimps and their customers, but we certainly get a lot of revealing conversational tidbits from the women themselves.

Be warned this is a graphic film and its' rather sobering to say the least. Doing ten tricks a night is not a fun time. I wish all these films that glorify this profession ("Pretty Woman" comes to mind) would have this film as mandatory viewing after. One does ponder as to who are the clients of these women – and why?? That is not the role of this film, but it does boggle!
