this film didn't grab me at first but Holly (Thuy) is fantastic and Patrick (Ron) does a great job too. I haven't thought about this too much but it's all so totally horrible_painful and hart wrenching
Dialog and acting were horrible. Yes, the topic of human trafficking and young girls forced into prostitution is horrible. But there is no excuse for horrible acting.
A documentary would not have done the subject justice. The story of one child and her would be rescuer made me realize that each of these children has his/her own unique history while sharing the same horrendous fate. The actors were great!
