[Movie Review] SARA 《雏妓》

Please note that there will be special sneaks starting this Friday, 20th to 22nd March!!

Thank you Clover Films for all movie stills!

Main actress of this film, Charlene Choi never failed to surprise and to impress with her performance in acting over the years. She takes a whole new level to her acting as she played a daring role (where she have to be touched and undressed in some scenes) in this upcoming movie - SARA.

The movie depicts the life story of Sara (played by Charlene Choi) from young till adulthood. It was due to a terrifying incident happened to her at home, she decided to leave the house and later becoming a journalist who explores the dark secrets of sex tourism in Asia. In between and before her career as a journalist, she faces a lot of unfortunate events.. As a viewer, i can really feel the pain she had to go through.. (it makes my friends and i teared over it..) surviving alone in the street, falling for someone she should not; witnessing death of her loved ones; and risking her life to save an underage prostitute in a foreign country. Watch how she battle all these in the movie, overcoming her fear and got stronger as she grow.

Overall, this movie gives a very insightful story. I like the storyline. Great acting skills from the actors and actresses in the movie, especially Charlene Choi and Simon Yam. And i like how they highlight current social issues such as sex tourism and child prostitution. Its a show worth-watching!

Brief Synopsis: 

Journalist Sara has just spent four months completing an in-depth investigation piece. Her editor-in-chief, afraid of offending powerful politicians and business moguls, refuses to run it. Sara’s boyfriend, who works for the same magazine, chooses not to warn her and even sides with the editor-in-chief. In just one moment, Sara is turned off by her work, her love relationship and even about life.

At this low point in her life, Sara exiles herself to Chiang Mai, Thailand. One evening, while at a bar, Sara meets child prostitute Dok-my. During her time getting to know Dok-my and through the process of rescuing her, Sara becomes haunted by the memories of her own past.
