A North Carolina sheriff investigates the near-fatal drug overdose of an underachieving college girl, and uncovers many sordid details of her life before and during her descent into drugs and debauchery.
At fancy, private Colby University, in the North Carolina hills, a drug overdose puts a senior near death. The school administration calls in the acting sheriff to conduct "a delicate and discrete investigation" - a whitewash. The more he digs, the more evidence he finds that the overdose may have been attempted murder. In flashbacks that parallel his investigation, we see Alicia, a scholarship girl worried about her grades, gradually pulled into the social life of three rich and amoral young women, led by the blond Hadley, a femme fatale. Before the investigation ends, we've met boyfriends, a drug dealer, Alicia's mom, Hadley's dad, nurses, doctors, and an orderly.Written by
I know this film got terrible reviews and I would be hard pressed to say they were wrong but the truth is its kind of fun on a silly trashy level. First off Mia Kirshner is always good (Even here!) and Taye Diggs is totally unbelievable as a campus cop with or without the accent, it comes and goes. And there is sex, drugs, and nudity. Dominique Swain gets naked here and engages in lesbian sex. I also enjoyed the use of sound and music as its not used to be obnoxious but rather to enhance the mood of the scene. Is it junk? Sure! but I had a fun time and went with it.
