I am a young woman. I am also a feminist and I really love it when the movies portray women in a positive way. Even though my aunt was a prostitute I still look up to her. However, I have to disagree with some of the other comments here. I did not find any of the characters "real". I mean, how many people did she have to choose between? What's the point of looking like a prostitute if you can't have a job? And, the ending wasn't what I was expecting. The only part that was really "real" was when she got raped. What's the point of making a movie about a girl having to kill herself? I felt that the movie was a bit like a glorification of prostitution. However, I do believe that women can be really beautiful and the people that worked on this movie did a really great job. I would love to see more movies about women in a positive way. I also think that it is important to make movies about women who are trapped in a life of crime. If you look at all the crimes women are put into and they do not get out of it without a long, long journey and fighting for their freedom, you will see a very different message of the movie. However, if you just look at it as a simple entertainment piece, then I think it is a pretty good movie. In fact, I would say that the people that worked on this movie did a great job and I would highly recommend it. I don't know if they did it because they were truly good or they were just making a movie that was supposed to be a movie. I'm giving this movie a 9 out of 10 because I think it is pretty good. However, I can't really give it a 10 because of the ending.

I remember a time when documentaries were very difficult to make. A good documentary is a work of art, and a good documentary, even with all the cameras and the fancy editing, still leaves you with an emotion in the end. A good documentary can't be 100% accurate, but it has to be very close. This film takes that point of view and goes deeper than you can imagine. If you like this kind of movies, then you'll like this one. It's a great film, with very few flaws. It's a documentary about a huge and important problem, but it's also a great film about a great and important subject. It is the best film I've ever seen about a topic I don't really know much about. It's like a "what if" film, and if you've ever had a friend who said "what if" to you, then you'll like this film. It's one of those movies that doesn't have an easy way out. It's like a movie that tries to give you the impression that it's about an issue that everyone is thinking about, but in reality, it's about a very small problem. The best part of the film is the fact that it doesn't try to tell you what to think or how to feel. It doesn't try to force you into a certain point of view. It just shows you what it's like to be a person who is living with a disease that makes life miserable, and that's what it's like to be in a situation like this. If you can relate to that situation, then you'll definitely like this film. If you don't like documentaries, this is definitely not for you. I recommend this film to anyone who loves documentaries. 9/10
