I must say that I was taken by surprise by the 2020 movie titled "Angie: Lost Girls", as this turned out to be an emotional and hard-hitting movie. Now, keep in mind that the topic of human trafficking for sex is one that might not be suitable for everyone in the audience. However, I will say that this is definitely a movie that is well-worth taking the time to sit down and watch, especially since it is dealing with such a grotesque and inhuman thing as sex trafficking. But it should be noted that writers Janet Odogwu and Julia Verdin definitely managed to write an intense and moving story that sweeps up the audience. The story, while being rather tough and vile, is actually nicely told without going too far. You get to know what you need to know, so director Julia Verdin didn't overstep the boundaries of what would be deemed acceptable for a movie meant for entertainment purposes. Sure, some of the scenes are graphic and needs little explanation, but they help to further the storyline quite well. It should be said that the acting performances in the movie were quite good, even for the one playing the scumbags behind the sex trafficking. I mean, this was a movie after all, and the actors and actresses were portraying fictional characters. But they put on really good performances that you start to forget that it is actually just a movie. I was not familiar with the performers in the movie, but I will take the time to applaud Jane Widdop (playing Angie) for her performance in this movie. My rating of "Angie: Lost Girls" is a solid and well-deserved six out of ten stars. It is a movie that should be watched, if you have the time and opportunity to do so.
