Acts of Worship

Set in Manhattan's lower east side, the film focuses o­n two characters Alix (Ana Reeder), a homeless addict and Digna (Michael Hyatt), who was o­nce where Alix was. Alix has managed to turn her life around and become a successful photographer who has built her careering photographing street junkies. Alix is different than most of the junkies in that she is attractive and educated. This really makes her stick out, both to the viewing audience and also o­n the street. Although more beautiful and better dressed than her fellow addicts, she is certainly treated the same way. Left for dead when she overdoses, is pushed down the stairs, and trading sex for money. Her daily life soon consists of hustling for money to buy drugs. I've never felt more in the streets watching any other film. If you enjoyed Requiem for a Dream and Kids, you will be blown away by the realism of this independent film.
