Meet Sonny (James Franco) and his mother Jewel (Brenda Blethyn). Sonny has returned from the Army to his mother's loving arms, to the sultry, sordid streets of New Orleans, to his mother's whorehouse. He's one of Jewel's most sought-after "employees," but he's thinking about a career change. Sonny is back to start his life anew. Maybe with Carol (Mena Suvari), one of Jewel's girls, and one of the few who dream of a life outside "the life". Or maybe in Texas, where the promise of a real job seems almost too good to be true. Until now he's survived in a business where women paid to sleep with him. But how much will it cost to set him free? Ripe Southern Gothic yarn (think overheated Tennessee Williams) is a compelling directorial debut from Nicolas Cage that gives Harry Dean Stanton his best role in years.
