|Plot||Claire Dolan is an Irish immigrant, working as a Manhattan call girl, paying off a debt she owes her pimp, Roland Cain. She's almost without affect, much like the sterile, glass-and-concrete high-rises where she lives and works. Violence lurks just below the surface. Cain can be menacing as are men who approach her. When her mother dies, Claire tries to escape the life, moving to Newark, visiting a cousin, working as a manicurist, realizing that she wants to have a baby, and going out a couple of times with a cabby. But Cain finds her and insists on payment, so she returns to Manhattan. The cabby wants to help: can Claire leave prostitution and find happiness in motherhood?... see Claire Dolan on IMDb|

|Electrifying indie auteur Lodge Kerrigan, following up his cult ordeal Clean, Shaven, explores the desolate existence and paranoid perspective of a woman lost in a tangle of high-end prostitution and urban anxiety. Claire Dolan (Katrin Cartlidge, Naked, Breaking the Waves), an Irish immigrant in Manhattan, pays off her debt to a formidable gangster/pimp (Colm Meaney, The Snapper, Layer Cake) by submitting herself, as a call girl, to the whims of anonymous businessmen. Craving an ordinary existence and living in cold dread of losing her sense of self, Claire attempts to bond with a quietly troubled cab driver (Vincent D'Onofrio, Full Metal Jacket, Ed Wood) and remake her life. Both a dramatic exploration of exploitation and a psychological portrait of modern womanhood adrift in a world of violation and rootlessness, and filmed by Kerrigan with a poet's awareness of detail, Claire Dolan stands as one of the 1990s' most significant and affecting works of cinema.|
