Joan Freeman, USA, 1985, Shout! Factory, Action

“Times Square tawdriness is ordinarily the province of male directors, but Freeman has made a fast-paced, creditable B-movie out of STREETWALKIN’.” - New York Times

She turned to night-walking to survive the streets. Now she's running through the streets to survive the night. Academy Award–winning actress Melissa Leo (THE FIGHTER) stars as Cookie, a teenage runaway who escapes her abusive stepfather and heads for the big city along with her younger brother. When she arrives at the bus terminal, Cookie meets a charming but sadistic pimp named Duke (Dale Midkiff, PET SEMATARY). With nowhere else to go, Cookie’s soon working for Duke, who introduces her to the harsh life of a prostitute. A harrowing, fast-paced ride through the lurid streets of New York's terrifying underbelly, STREETWALKIN’ co-stars Antonio Fargas (I’M GONNA GET YOU SUCKA), Julie Newmar (BATMAN), Leon Robinson (CLIFFHANGER), and Khandi Alexander (TREMÉ).
