Good girl turn bad then....
24 August 2013 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Sweetness O'Hara (Zoë Kravitz) has a dysfunctional family in a rough neighborhood. Her black mother is a mess and her white father is a violent drunk mess. She's a good girl getting picked on. Her older sister can't protect her anymore. Her only option is to turn bad to survive. Eventually she can't stand the pressure and helps selling drugs. This gives her the cred which she uses to turn her fortunes around.

The movie starts great with Gabourey Sidibe's group picking on Zoë Kravitz. Zoë is outstanding. It has a real energy about it. I do have some confusion with some of the characters. Some things seem to be introduced out of nowhere. Maybe it's the editing or maybe it's the writing. Sometimes I'm just not 100% sure about. Nevertheless, it's great overall.
