Born into the seedy, underground world of prostitution, 15-year-old Shara has known no other life. Her mother is a career escort, who's now looking to Shara to make the kind of money she used to make in her youth. However, her plans for her daughter are interrupted when Shara meets and falls for a drug addicted, street hustler, Jamie. Dreams of changing their lives and running off into the sunset together take a harrowing turn for they as the two learn that escaping their past isn't as easy as it seems.
Don't you love being surprised by a film in a good way. Usually this happens to our dismay and we end up losing 90 to 150 mins. Of our life we'll never get back again. But when this happens in a good way you feel happy for the actors, writers, directors and producers etc. who all pitched in to make an amazing film.
Nowhereland aka. Girl lost is just that, A story told without apologizing for it's incredible reality of an underaged female teen coerced into prostitution. Purely brilliant cinematography this independent film packs a punch on all fronts. I sometimes felt as though I was merely a fly on the wall watching a real life couple. Not to say It was a reality show type of setting I am just stating how authentic some scenes were set up to be. It's the kind of film that deeply pulls on your heart strings as you watch it by being excruciatingly sad while simultaneously being entertaining.
Acting, pace, On camera charisma was all above par. And for that reason I give this movie a GREAT MOVIE rating. Please you should sit down and make some time to watch this film it is truly a good film you won't be disappointed.
Robin Bain the actress, writer and producer of this film should be extremely proud.
