"Angie" (Annie Q), a damaged girl from a tough urban background, is accepted at a prestigious university in the 80s. When her financial aid is cut, she breaks into the organic chemistry lab and synthesizes the drug Ecstasy. She becomes one of the west coast's largest distributors of "X," cutting deals on campus and in posh nightclubs. Her dual life as "model minority" coed and profit-driven drug dealer is further complicated by her desire to help "Bree," a young girl from the ghetto who reminds Angie of her own dark past. She lives the high life until her recklessness instigates a sudden tragedy from which she may not recover. Will she learns to give and receive the love necessary to transcend her past and step into the light?

I must be the 3rd person Writing all these bad reviews
27 May 2019 | by klanders-37399See all my reviews

First of all that's in reference to a reviewer actually saying that there's one or two people writing bad reviews. It also screwed up the headline I wanted to use which was: an inspiration for all who think they're not good enough to make it in Hollywood I was just irritated by that comment. But there's something good about that. That comment is the perfect thing gauge if you should watch this movie or pass. If you read that comment and you didn't understand or didn't think it was an assinine comment, then this movie is the one for you. You'll love it. If you noticed that all the "positive" reviews, Wow there are way more there should be, description of why they liked it has nothing to do with what's important when making a good movie. I read more than I wanted to just to see and they all say the samething. Strong, honest, brave, Asian, real. The last one being the most laughable. I'll say this they must not know a single person who's ever used drugs. And that itself is a sad statement. If the say something acting and directing related it's very short. Hey I love a strong brave Asian woman as much as the next guy rolling but a good movie this is not. Why is this a bad movie you might ask? Oh where oh where do I begin? To be honest I missed some of the points the other one or two of my fellow negative reviewers brought up. Like being shot in all close ups. That's huge. How could I possibly not notice that scince I'm writing about it. Easy. I was so fixated on the completely impossible to believe dialogue and words being completely mispronounced and just left I couldn't believe another word wasn't used that could've been so much easier. What kid says "familial". I coukd see them doing so many retakes and giving up and using it instead of doing what most directors would have done. Gotten an actor who could pronounce it if they had to leave it in that bad. That right there should sum it up. That's the whole movie in all areas. After the Thanksgiving diner scene ,when the hurt daughter runs to the bathroom, I was thinking I'm right there with you. And then she told herself, "I will be cast in better movies, my acting will get better." And she finished the movie. I think. I honestly couldn't finish it. Two stars bc I have seen worse. I pretty sure there have been worse. There has to have been.
