Beware: some very disturbing scenes including a rape.
Interesting story though.

This film was quite interesting. It's not exactly a "family" movie in the least however.
And the ending was actually not really satisfying in the least bit. Personally I wish they would have gone more into detail as to what happened instead of leaving off with the girls in the car.
All in all it was decent but the ending was not satisfying.

A young girl, Angus, and her sisters are raised in The Poker House. This film is about what Agnus had to go through, from her drug-addicted prostitute mother and her pimp to looking after her two younger sisters. Agnus must overcome the hardships and manages to even win her basketball game.

All in all this film is about a young girl's hard life and her ability to handle the things that go on with the maturity of someone twice her age.
