News & Interviews for Holly
Critic Reviews for Holly
Ultimately, Holly might have been more effective as a documentary.
Despite its best intentions, Holly never achieves the dramatic clarity it needs to put its human suffering into galvanizing perspective.
Despite a strong performance by Livingston, the film is sunk by sluggish pacing, straight-ahead plotting and an unresolved ending -- not to mention its inability to convince us that anything much can be done about sexual slavery.
Half drama, half social tract, Guy Moshe's feature debut is meant to illustrate the horrors of child prostitution in Southeast Asia. The intentions, unfortunately, are more notable than the execution.
There's a riveting story lurking inside Holly; It's just not the one the filmmakers want to tell.
An unsparing look at child prostitution is a hard sell for audiences, but this movie is a memorable achievement.
Audience Reviews for Holly
Not bad. Felt very watered down, but still a good movie raising awareness of child prostitution. The young girl who plays 12 year old Holly is very good, as is Ron Livingstone as the man who tries to help her escape.
