Troubled daughter of White Trash family gets in over her head
1 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is difficult to review this movie without spoilers because it is so disjointed.

The opening scene is an extreme closeup showing only the audio and text of an online sex chat between teenage Kelly and various older men that are paying for the privilege of watching Kelly "perform" for them. But this scene is deceptive because it's not what the movie is about. It is merely to introduce you to the life of a young girl that is pure "id" (or "superego") caring only about herself.

Kelly wants to "go pro" by starting a webcam site of her own, but again, that's not what the movie is about.

Early on, we are introduced to Kelly's dysfunctional White Trash family for some insight on just why young Kelly is so troubled.

Friends, family, everyone that gets sucked into Kelly's self-involved world ends up worse for it. Following a falling out with her on-again/off-again boyfriend, Kelly finds herself in a world of trouble, turning to one of her online clients for help. Things continue to spiral out of control and you are taken for a ride on one of the worst nights of anyone's life.

The acting isn't awful, and despite an amateurish script, is worth watching till the end, but don't go looking for "King Kelly" on Oscar night.
