Audience Reviews for Stella Does Tricks

Teen runaway Stella (Kelly MacDonald) finds camaraderie in London among the stable of hookers run by her sly pimp, Mr. Peters (James Bolam). When one of her friends is abused by a thug, Stella attempts to escape her cruel life and start anew. Good movie on a disturbing subject.
