Gritty and powerful... worth buying!
I loved it, but it was hard to watch. The basic story is of a destructive romantic relationship between a petty con artist (Brody) and a college girl with a bright mind and too much love to give (Charlotte Ayanna). Of course, the relationship goes south in a hurry, and we see Ayanna's character fall pretty fast, which is the part that's hard to watch. At one point I considered turning off the movie, but I was desperately hoping that they would both turn it around. I won't ruin the movie for you, but I highly recommend seeing it. The beauty of the film was in the realness of it - I could actually envision myself in their positions. And this reality is what makes it so tough to watch. The icing on the cake was the fantastic music, but don't count on finding these little-known masterpieces on Kazaa... the studio has never released a soundtrack for the movie. Interestingly enough, the music was selected by Brody himself, who had planned on remixing the soundtrack but was called away to the set of The Piano instead.
