PRETTY BABY (1978)- Directed by Louis Malle with Brooke Shields, Keith Carradine and Susan Sarandon.
This is a Louis Malle film set in a New Orleans bordello about Violet (a young Brooke Shields) who, at age twelve, is preparing to become a prostitute. Bellocq, an existing photographer (1873-1949) (played by Keith Carradine) enters the district area to photograph the prostitutes and falls in love with Violet. It’s a beautiful and heartbreaking tale with wonderful cinematography. This one is for the true art lovers of the world.
