Messy Reality of a Street Kid's Life

Finding a safe place can be hard when you don't know where you belong.

This drama is hard to watch, but engaging. Vanessa Hudgens turns in a compelling performance as a feisty street kid who is searching for her identity amid hard choices.

Rosario Dawson, James Earl Jones and Brendan Fraser fully inhabit their roles.

The film addresses poverty, class, systemic racism, white privilege and the problems in the shelter system. Not a big film, but thought provoking.

admirable attempt

Agnes 'Apple' Bailey (Vanessa Hudgens) has another fight with her drug-addicted mother June Bailey (Rosario Dawson). She tries to see her absent biological father Tom Fitzpatrick (Brendan Fraser) and gets arrested. He is a wealthy broker with a young upper class family. The troubled Apple wants him to get her out of the foster system. She stays with them until they find out that she's pregnant. She gets arrested for stealing and crashing a creep's car. Priest Father McCarthy (James Earl Jones) sends her to a shelter run by Kathy (Ann Dowd) with other girls like Cassie (Emily Meade).

This is not a subtle movie. Vanessa Hudgens is obviously trying to stretch beyond her pretty looks. I'm of two minds about the effectiveness. While I admire her attempt, she may be trying too hard. The same can be said about Dawson. There are big swings here and I appreciate them. There is a need to structure the drama. It comes off as a rambling narrative. The reveal of the real inspiration helps a little but doesn't fix this central problem. This is a flawed indie with some intriguing swings by the two actresses.

Great One!

Right after my weekend watching High School Musical, and surf the channels to watch this film really surprises me. Vanessa has always been the actress with sweet smile and sweet character, I was always thought that with her face expression, there is no way for her to step out from that kind of image from the audience. You may think of Spring Break, I know, but her acting and outstanding performance in Gimme Shelter, is totally shocking me. This time, she puts out all of her acting skills and live with this character "Apple". If you are well aware of her works, you will see a different eye in "Apple". Those desire and desperate of her feelings, is something that you can't see in her previous works. (Not to mention her famous HSL, that was total immature) I gave this film a 10 stars ranking, not only because of V's excellent work, I do enjoy the story. Good movies can inspire people to be better and to be kind to other people, I hope you will fell that same.
