Trivia

The title "White Girl" not only refers to the film's protagonist but is also a slang word for cocaine (the primary drug consumed in the film). See more »

Goofs

Leah puts a cigarette in her mouth, tobacco end first, then tamps the same end down in a small pile of cocaine (to get some in the cigarette?) then puts it back into her mouth, again tobacco end first. When she removes her hand, the cigarette has reversed so that the filter end is now magically in her mouth.

This occurs at about 54 mins. See more »

Quotes

Blue: You think we're some drug dealers or something man?
Leah: Uh... no? I just thought you guys maybe know were the hook is...
Blue: Nah, for real shorty... You can't be coming straight and ask strangers like that. Aright?
Leah: Are you serious?
Blue: Do I look serious?
[Leah walks away, Blue lights up a joint]
Blue: Hey shorty!

Scary, Tense and Wild...And In Some Ways Too Real
28 September 2016 | by spiritof67See all my reviews

Unlike most reviewers I saw this movie with intimate knowledge of street life, and the director got a whole lot right there. And as well, I've known noobs like the lead actress who got themselves into a life about which they knew very little until they were so deep in so fast they couldn't get back out. So with that, I was on my seat edge as our heroine went from precipice to precipice, nearly always avoiding the fall. Without a spoiler alert, she does virtually everything in this film you could to get killed or maimed and the writer/director finds ways for her to fail yet survive.

There's a lot of grit here, from hard parties to transactional activities between employer and employee, and then client and counsel. It was all done very realistically, scarily so in many cases.I would love to know where the writer/director got her adviser on street sales - whoever it was really knew the game. See this movie.But be prepared to be scared, if you know the streets.
