Most accurate portrayal of junkie street life in NYC.
31 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Very accurate portrayal of the life of NYC street kids. Has any underlying love story, but not your usual love story. Love the real feel it has to it. The casting was great. Arielle is going to be a star. It was nice to see many familiar spots in the city. I hope everyone gets a chance to see this. Has a little bit of everything.. violence, suicide, drugs, sex and hard style. What more could you ask for? Maybe a little drum and bass. Cudos to the actors and directors and everyone else involved making this. It was almost surreal watching this knowing several of the actors and knowing the lifestyle and then seeing it played out extremely realistic to how it actual was. Looking forward to the next movie Arielle is in to see what those acting chops can really do.
