I saw this in Toronto...
18 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

...during the film festival. It was an interesting film. In the Q&A after the movie, the director said that this movie was inspired by a story she read about real girls who were selling favors at the mall in exchange for money, clothes, etc. She said that she interviewed real girls who were doing this, but that the people in this movie are actresses and not real teen prostitutes. It wasn't as shocking as the 90's movie "Kids", but from comments made during the Q&A, this sort of behavior is very shocking in Poland. I think in many areas in the US/Canada, it is also shocking, but perhaps not completely unexpected. I think that the sexual situations happen a lot everywhere, but perhaps not the payment after the act. Overall, I think it was pretty believable and the teen actors/actresses were pretty convincing.
