This is one of those low-budget indies that’s more about situations than plot, using lots of earnest close-ups instead of deep character development. Morgan Saylor plays a college student who hooks up with a Puerto Rican drug dealer. That’s only the beginning of her hazy experiences with cocaine, abusive men and the law. He gets arrested. She gets used. Yep, it’s gritty, but not especially heavy. Even though she goes thru some intense episodes, her performance is not especially compelling. This film tries hard to be shocking, but lacks the punch to make it work. (Criterion Cinemas only thru Thursday)

 

1.5 out of 5 stars (1.5 / 5)
