A film of despair it looks at desperate times despite a wild culture of a fun party life.
"White Girl" is one of those little independent movies that most in the mainstream don't see still if you do you see it's a showcase of a culture of despair and carefree lifestyle that in the end is a doom and dead way for all involved. Set in New York city it involves the life and times of a college girl named Leah(Morgan Saylor)and this young lady is a free spirit who's a bisexual colored bra wearing college party girl who enjoys wild time after time. And after meeting a guy who she feels for the world of drugs consumes and overtakes their life and way of living and the entire culture involves getting help and getting out of trouble. Leah's only hope is now the legal route in the hands of an attorney named George(veteran actor Chris Noth from "Sex and the City")still it may prove to be to late. This film really has a message of showing that the wild life of sex and drugs is to often meet with despair and desperation despite having love and hope.
