Acts of Worship

Rated NR 94 minutes 2001

A familiar story with heart-wrenching humanity and an astonishing ability to display the horrific pain that comes when someone is in the ferocious grip of drug addiction. Alix, a young white, educated, middle-class girl, turned homeless due to her crack and heroin addiction. Her daily life consists of hustling for money to buy drugs. She constantly takes advantage of the few friends she does have, because of her desperate need to feed her habit. When Digna, a photographer on the verge of making it big, befriends Alix and attempts to set her on the path to recovery, the troubled girl's emotional and ethical cores are put to the test. On the surface the two women seem to represent success and failure respectively. However, when their lives become intertwined, the similarities between them are exposed, revealing them both to be suffering from a fear that manifests itself in self-destruction and isolation.
