Princesses (Princesas) (2005)
Release Date: 02 September 2005
Made two years ago, Fernando León de Aranoa's provocative slice of life revolves around two of Madrid's so-called princesses: working girls who sell their bodies to secure a better future. Insecure Spaniard Caye needs her money for breast implants to boost her confidence, while her sexy Dominican rival Zulema sends home all of the tips she earns to support her elderly mother and five-year-old son. Unexpectedly united in the face of adversity and the abusive and demanding men who try to exploit them, Caye and Zulema find their places in a world that treats them without tenderness or pity.
