4.0 out of 5 stars Gritty, Realistic, Sometimes Hard to Watch August 19, 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What makes this movie a standout is that it all seems real. This is no backlot prison stage with sqeaky clean actors trying to play real grit. This is truly a down and dirty portrayal of women's prison life. But despite the often disturbing depiction of this (the unabashed violence; and one scene with a prison guard and a speculum), that's not really what this movie is about. It delves deeper into one young woman's dream/fantasy of recapturing the archetypal missing mother and chronicles her transformation from a girl who knows what she wants (to find her mother, Brownie, who is locked up in the federal pen) to a young woman whose self-discovery becomes her ultimate grief.
The movie is filled with outstanding performances (Rain Phoenix, for one is phenomenal), good pacing and production,and good storytelling. It falls short because I believe it does perpetuate some stereotypes many may have about women's prisons and at times, doesn't seem to be able to move beyond these familiar, formulaic images. I would have liked to have seen something I haven't seen in prison movies before.
The DVD has chapter selection capability and is presented in widescreen format. However, if you are looking for special features, this is about it. I would have liked to have seen a "behind the camera" featurette or a director's commentary on this disc. Cheryl Dunye is a talented, talented director and not to have heard directly from her about this movie is a shortcoming.
I recommend this movie very highly. It's not one you'll want to watch over and over so before you buy, consider renting it first. This movie is like a fine meal, it's good the first time around but you wouldn't want to eat this way every night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Intense Film January 11, 2006
Format:DVD
I really enjoyed this film... The relationship that Treasure had with her mother was unfortunately, not far from reality in some cases. I thought the activities/events of prison life was really bold of HBO and I was impressed with their dedication to keep things in line with reality. I think the acting in the film, especially by Treasure, was very well presented. The characters were believable and realistic. Great job on this one...

4.0 out of 5 stars Twisted August 11, 2009
Format:DVD
I THOUGHT THIS MOVIE WAS JUST GOING TO BE ABOUT JAIL AND HOW HARD WOMEN HAVE IT IN JAIL....BOY WAS I WRONG. THIS MOVIE WAS EXCELLENT. IT CAPTIVES YOU FROM THE OPENING SCENE TO THE END. I WISH THEY WOULD HAVE MADE A SEQUEL, JUST TO CONTINUE THE SUSPENSE. I EVEN SHARED THIS MOVIE WITH FAMILY FRIENDS AND THEY ENJOYED IT. THIS IS A MUST TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION.

5.0 out of 5 stars NO SUGAR COATING HERE.......... February 21, 2007
Format:DVD
I guess I will never understand how these types of films get absolutely no promotional solicitation.

This film is excellent. You are left feeling a connection to the characters and wanting to know more. The events (although unfortunate) are realistic and relatable.

I would (and already have) recommend this film to others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stranger Indeed October 7, 2010
By C. Vann
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just resently purchased this film to watch and it blew me away. Usually I don't watch independent films, because the acting is not good and the film is quite choppy; however this movie was recommended to see the struggles of women life story while in prison. The main character Treasure Lee was looking for acceptance from a mother "Brownie" who didn't even know her existence. Treasure allowed the system to be place of residence and for her gang "GG's" to become her family. Throughout the movie you saw Treasure and Brownie became a family and how Treasure pushed the ones that always had her back against the wall. The director did a wonderful job of keeping the storyline interesting and allowing the viewers a true peek inside the correctional facilities. The ending definitely throws you for a loop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising March 17, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a movie that led me to believe one thing and then the ending let me know the truth. I felt so sorry the main character but it lets you know that you have to put the time into a person before you trust them completely.
