Pretty Baby

Dir: Louis Malle
Star: Susan Sarandon, Brooke Shields, Keith Carradine, Antonio Fargas

[3] The good news is, this has Brooke Shields 'getting her kit off'. The bad news is, er, she was eleven when she made it. Distinctly unnerving experience, seeing an undoubtedly beautiful (I stress, in an aesthetic sense) pre-teenager playing a New Orleans hooker, whose virginity is auctioned off for $400. Fortunately, it's shot unleeringly (though that didn't prevent problems with the censor) and a good supporting cast (Fargas and Barbara Steele) make it a film that is both worthy and justifiable.
