Dramas about the porn industry range from expressions of puritanical rage to celebrations of open sexuality; this one manages to avoid both extremes, as well as anything else that might make it worth watching.

The fatal flaw ... is its refusal to examine Angelina's occupation from outside the bubble. You might even call it a recruitment film.

Unfocused and lazy, About Cherry is a poorly made film that's kind of pretentious. There's not much of a plot: a teen runaway heads to San Francisco… More

I am sure that this was made with incredible noble intentions. In fact these intentions basically scream from the screen, I was almost expecting race and, say,… More
