Sarah (Emmy James), a country bumbkin with a heart of gold, moves to New York City to study to become an actress, and also to try and make it in the big city - but soon enough gets dished more than she has asked for, from an abusive acting teacher (Federico Castelluccio) to a neighbour (Shing Ka) who thinks he's in love with her with a predilection for stalking, to constant money problems and the realization that a regular job in the city is just another word for exploitation, to sleazy agents left and right, none of whom look after her best interest. Eventually she finds a nicely paid job as a courier with wholesalers Danny (Tony Sirico) and Tommy (Vincent Pastore), who despite their sleazy enough first impression are decent enough guys - with the one problem that they deal in counterfeit goods. Eventually, she gets a date with sought after arthouse director Troy (William DeMeo) - who roofies her and then even tries to convince her it was a romantic gesture. Thing is, working with him could mean her big break - but then he has a run-in with a police detective (Garry Pastore) who tries to convince her that Troy is a drugrunner behind his arthouse facade, and tries to force her into becoming his snitch. And eventually, Sarah has the choice of either just go under or woman up ...

Sally Kirkland plays Sarah's good-natured landlady, Burt Young her caring grandfather.


Now the premise of "a country bumbkin trying to make it in the big city" isn't exactly a very fresh concept, but what makes this movie is that it keeps things very grounded and feels very real, basically because it stays away from all spectacle and overdone melodramatics - even the scenes in the film that would lend themselves to that are rather underplayed, and welcomely so, really, as that makes Sarah's story much more believable and also relatable. And lead Emmy James does a great job giving her character just the right mix of vulnerability and resilience, and she's supported by a strong ensemble, and all of this makes Sarah Q pretty cool entertainment.
