Storyline

"Angie" (Annie Q), a damaged girl from a tough urban background, is accepted at a prestigious university in the 80s. When her financial aid is cut, she breaks into the organic chemistry lab and synthesizes the drug Ecstasy. She becomes one of the west coast's largest distributors of "X," cutting deals on campus and in posh nightclubs. Her dual life as "model minority" coed and profit-driven drug dealer is further complicated by her desire to help "Bree," a young girl from the ghetto who reminds Angie of her own dark past. She lives the high life until her recklessness instigates a sudden tragedy from which she may not recover. Will she learns to give and receive the love necessary to transcend her past and step into the light?

Cry Fest, and not in a good way.
17 September 2018 | by webwizardbeSee all my reviews

Ok, I managed to watch the whole movie, I was in a party mood so I started laying a bottom with some beers before going out. So I tought, WTF, it's a dope movie with 80's music, parties and all, even a true story also...

Of course I knew I was in for a low budget movie, written, directed and produced by Angie herself. But the first half was bearable, sometimes funny even, but the second half OMG. The girls started crying, mumbling and crying some more till the end of the movie. And that's where I knew the writer wasn't honest: or she covered things up in her own life and only shows the regret (the legal issues of cooking & selling drugs, murder, embezzling,... aren't even touched), or she exaggerated her own youth but didn't have the money to pay for those consequences in terms of a solid script, with of course the necessary settings, additional actors,... I dont know, but when this movie hits the point of crisis, it stays there till the end.

I see people from the crew are talking about the 80's feel & setting. Except for a few songs, I never had an 80's vibe. And the sets, as cheap as possible, as less as background possible. A club is one long sofa with people sitting next to each other haha.

And for someone who took and selled XTC, she knows not very much about the product. Nobody takes some pills and starts dancing right away, first you have to get through that nauseating feeling for half an hour and only then (if you are not sticked to your chair high on serotonine) the party's on for 2 hours.

I find it kind of a pity this movie spiraled down that hard in the second half. 'Cause despite the low budget I tought the first 40 min. seemed promising, but she couldn't keep it up. My advice: don't watch it.
