Movie Review by Movie Addict
June 5th, 2010

Favorite Movie Quote: "I know what I am. Don't think for a second that I don't, 'cus I do."

A drama about living in the inner city, where crack and prostitution reign. Some say it is too dark, but it's real and dark is what this life is all about.

Waking up with c*ckroaches running across your face, and having nothing more than a cracker for breakfast, would make anyone despair.

The film features pre-op transsexual Marybeth (Kerry Washington) and her boyfriend Benny (Desmond Harrington), Manny (Victor Rasuk) who works two jobs to support his wife (Shannyn Sossamon) and baby, street kids Willy (Ridge Canipe) and Suzie (Ariel Winter) and gang member Romeo (Evan Ross). Among the other recognizable faces are Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), Illeana Douglas (Otis), Lara Flynn Boyle (Land of the Blind), Vondie Curtis-Hall (The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans), Mark Webber (The Laramie Project), RZA (American Gangster), Carly Pope (Young People F*cking), Thomas Ian Nicholas (American Pie, Pie 2, Wedding) and Tony Plana (Slayer).

If you like poverty-porn, then you will find four good stories and lots of familiar actors in this film.
