excellentBy a customer from UK , 15 Sep 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]I saw this when it appeared on TV and was totally absorbed by it. In fact, I still can remember some parts vividly. It's a excellent, gritty portrayal of how innocent girls become trapped in a sordid and dangerous life as prostitutes. John Simm is one of my favourite actors and has been ever since I saw him in another TV drama set in the Lake District. Now, of course, he's well known for the excellent TV series 'Life on Mars'. Here, he gives another superb performance but the highest accolade must go to the main female lead, Anamaria Marinca, who won an award , I think, for her portrayal of one of the kidnapped sisters. This is no comfortable story. It is upsetting, disturbing and very realistic. You'll remember it long after you've seen it and that, to me, says quality drama.

Quality film - a 'must' watchBy largee (2 reviews) , 12 Jun 2011A truly thought provoking film about sex trafficing that, although fictional, must have been strongly based on fact.
It was quite horrifying at times and yet compelling to watch. Wonderful direction and the acting is first class. And it has a finish at the end that is at least to some degree satisfying.
Definately worth 3 hours of saturday evening veiwing.
Excellent drama, important subjectBy a customer , 05 May 2011I missed this film when it was originally shown as a 2 part tv drama so decided to 'catch up' - and managed to watch it in one sitting (it does stretch to around three hours!). Whilst some of the characterization was a bit superficial some of the central performances are excellent - Anamaria Marinca is terrific as the older sister, and 'the girls' come across as the most rounded and compelling of the characters. It's a mostly absorbing and disturbing tale, and anyone who claims to be bored or unmoved by it most likely has some deep dark secret that they would rather not acknowledge concerning exploitation.
