WORKING GIRLS concentrates on the daily routine of a modern-day Manhattan prostitute in a detached, clinical manner, breaking away from old myths to create an insightful and, in many ways, disturbing interpretation of what has been called the "world's oldest profession." Molly (Louise

Smith) is a Yale graduate, nearing 30, who temporarily works in a Manhattan brothel to help make ends meet. The Manhattan brothel she works in appears as a normal office. The girls dress like secretaries, and harmlessly chat about their personal lives, the job, and their general disdain for their

boss, as they patiently wait for the day to end so they can go home.

Director Lizzie Borden's usually sharp eye for detail pervades WORKING GIRLS, and here maintains a high level of interest throughout. The down-to-earth portrayals possess none of the stereotypes popular in media representations of prostitutes, and, as a result, are frighteningly realistic. A film

with an interesting and provocative feminist edge.
