    Makes little attempt to be credible or original. And the acting is poor.
  2. The bad news is that the characters and situations are platitudes and the story is so heavy-handed that the film is hard to sit through.
  3. The whole thing plays like a bad Equity-waiver one-act.
  4. This laughably clichéd dive into sexual masochism and hardscrabble survival replaces story with outline and characters with place holders.

    A waste of a talented, earnest cast, this borderline offensive indie, set for an Oct. 2 limited release, shouldn't take up too much valuable theater space before fading away.
