Although the year produced for the movie is 2002, at least some shots were filmed prior to September 11, 2001, since the twin towers of the New York World Trade Center are clearly visible. See more »

Saw this movie completely by accident. Didn't know any of the actors involved but was prepared for the worst but was genuinely surprised. The movie was good overall and had a likable character in Bobby-the lead character.
Most movies that deal with this topic have characters that come off as homophobic straight boys or stereotypically gay, but the character of Bobby is different and this credit goes in part to the young actor and the director/script for giving him a likable disposition and circumstances that traps him into the lifestyle.
Props goes out to the supporting cast who did a great job showing that no one is either pure innocent or pure evil when you're dealing with prostitution and the resulting lifestyle.
The end song, "Wings on my ankles" is even catchy.
Definitely worth a look if the topic ever interested you.
