An inert and boring morality tale that should please neither sensationalists nor puritans.

While it oozes with atmosphere and Sarandon is superb, the story never comes together and Malle's treatment of Shields is kinda creepy.

It was shocking in its day, perhaps... but today... [it] can't hope to be as provocative...

Susan Sarandon, as Hattie, is seamless and flawless, not to mention at her shapliest best.

This visually evocative tale of a child prostitue, Louis Malle's first American film, is not as strong as his next (Atlantic City), but Susan Sarandon and Brooke Shields are splendid.
