See “Women in Trouble”
Actresses Sarah Clarke (24, pictured, near right), Caitlyn Keats (Broken English, far right), and Emmanuelle Chriqui (Entourage) star in this movie about a day in the life of 10 quite different women―a mother, a masseuse, and a pair of prostitutes, among them―each fighting her own demons.
