Critic Reviews for Very Young Girls
Adopting a confessional, direct-to-camera interview style for most of its running time, this unvarnished vérité documentary about teenage prostitutes in New York City resolutely resists the urge to dramatize. The heartbreaking stories are drama enough.
[A] heartbreaking look at the trafficking of underage girls in New York City.
The film brings the painful plight of teenage prostitutes to light, refrains from inflicting any degree of blame or shame on them and points to ways they can reclaim their lives.

Audience Reviews for Very Young Girls
This was a harrowing documentary. It opens your eyes to what is happening right in America's backyard.
I don't know if I'd call this documentary shocking, since it doesn't really tell us anything we don't already know. But it does open your eyes to some of the reasons why girls might allow themselves to be led into this kind of situation, and it's quite eye-opening to hear the stories directly from them. This is worth watching, although it's a bit difficult to watch.
OMG, this documentary is tragic. Girls so young with issues such as this is heartbreaking. These girls go into a lot of horrific details concerning their situations and why they do what they do to survive in the streets. If you have children, you should definitely see this. Its very disturbing.
