Did You Know?

Goofs

The manner in which Shadow uses her pinhole camera is incorrect. For example, when she takes the picture of Treasure, she removes the cover from the pinhole and leaves the pinhole uncovered for a much longer period of time than required (correct time is 2-3 seconds vs. the 15-20 seconds "Shadow" leaves the pinhole uncovered). In addition, she leaves the pinhole uncovered until Treasure turns and walks away from her, and only then does she cover the pinhole. When we see that picture later, it is a perfectly developed, non-blurry picture of Treasure standing still, facing Shadow. First, the picture would've been extremely overexposed, quite possibly nothing but dark gray or black. Second, the picture would've been blurry from the fact that Treasure didn't just move, she turned and walked away before the pinhole was closed. See more »

a very good TV movie
22 March 2005 | by kobe1413See all my reviews

This movie caught my attention one late night on HBO and I could not stop watching it. The movie felt so real. The acting by Yolonda Ross and Davenia McFadden dominates the movie and gives it life. The supporting cast, lead by Rain Phoenix, each fill out their role. The various characters are memorable, even though much of the story is standard prison-life material, this movie is able to rise above lesser fare by presenting the personal side of prison life. The struggles of the main characters keeps the viewer engrossed. With a twist at the end, the movie is enjoyable from beginning to end. I give it an overall 7 out of of 10.
