Zoë Kravitz is outstanding as Sweetness O'Hara. She has a dysfunctional family in a rough neighborhood. Her black mother is a mess. But her white father is a violent drunk mess. She's a good girl getting picked on. Her older sister can't protect her anymore. Her only option is to turn bad to survive.
The movie starts great with Gabourey Sidibe's group picking on Zoë Kravitz. It has a real energy about it. Eventually she couldn't stand the pressure and help sell drugs. This gives her cred which she uses to turn her fortunes around.
I do have some confusion with some of the characters. Some things seem to be introduced out of nowhere. Maybe it's the editing or maybe it's the writing. Sometimes I'm just not 100% sure about. But it's great overall.
