Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.
A woman reeling from her lover's recent death purchases an abandoned former brothel in Jerome, Arizona, and begins to experience disturbing visions of the building's previous residents while attempting to transform it into a bed and breakfast. The more time Julianne spends restoring the transient, turn of the century estate, the better acquainted she becomes with its spectral tenants, including Ladie Sadie, the Madam. When Julianne learns of the horrible fate that befell young prostitute Maddy in a nearby mine, she works frantically to alter the past, becoming so immersed in the world of the dead that Ladie Sadie insists she reaffirm her mortality by forging a connection with another living being. Desperate, Julianne seduces the artist who lives next door, and winds up more isolated than ever after he grows confounded by her insincerity, and grows distant. Meanwhile, accelerating events in Julianne's life begin to feel as if they're racing to some sort of ominous apex. As Julianne's personality begins to fragment, she descends into the mineshaft in search of Maddy, but instead finds herself confronted by her own tragic past, and forced to make a painful decision. … More

Audience Reviews for Brothel
This mess couldn't figure out what it wanted to be aka poor direction: a restaurant owner's lover kills himself so she moves to small town Arizona and purchases a former brothel to make over into a B&B. Shortly after, she receives visions of the former brothel workers and somehow ties these delusions into her life with the lover, who was a thief that broke into her house and stayed. Ghost story? Examination of mental illness? Twisted romance? Doesn't matter - it is awful. Nice looking ladies though.
