The film “Girl Lost, A Hollywood Story” delivered on many topical levels - many of which are absolutely unfortunate but honest and direct. Writer, director, producer, and editor Robin Bain, who won awards for the previous film, “Girl Lost”, put together a stark reminder of what society tends to turn a blind eye toward - sexual exploitation of young women.

The film follows two characters' storylines as they navigate their real life problems living in Hollywood. One a single mother and the other a barely legal teen, the stories are harsh and uncompromising.

The performances are strong across the board. Moxie Owens as Hope looks and acts the part of her character. She doesn’t get along with her stepmother, dad dotes on his new wife, and she gets lured to Hollywood by a former babysitter - looking to pimp her out on the streets of Hollywood.

Psalms Salazar as Baby Girl also makes you empathize with her character's situation. A single mother with no real skill set to fall back on, wants a better life for her daughter, so she does whatever it takes to make that happen.

The film doesn’t necessarily preach. It does a great job of showing how these situations can arise. It’s easy to point fingers but in reality these things are going on all around the world even as I type this.

“Girl Lost, A Hollywood Story” is a hard film to watch but a necessary one. Recommended.
