Excellent show
6 September 2005 | by TruthSpeaksSee all my reviews

This is an excellent show with great acting and production values. It is colorful. I thought (perhaps mistakenly) that it was a pilot for some kind of series and I was disappointed that it did not go on.

The show is set in New Orleans. It makes good use of its unique location; you get a totally different feeling from the usual Hollywood movie. Annabella Sciorra looks zaftig, and she wears her new curves well. I appreciated seeing a woman with actual curves and hips on screen portraying a sexy character.

The main plot line concerns generations of New Orleans women running a brothel out of their house. They run up against trouble and have to try to find their way out.
