In 1917, in the red-light district of New Orleans, they called her "Pretty Baby"
Hattie (Susan Sarandon), a New Orleans hooker, meets a photographer named Bellocq (Keith Carradine) at her brothel one night and, after he photographs her, he befriends her 12-year-old daughter, Violet (Brooke Shields). When Violet is brought on as a working girl by her mother's madam and Hattie skips town to get married, Violet quickly loses her innocence and focuses on reuniting with Bellocq. But a life with Bellocq is compromised for Violet after her mother returns to town.

An uncomfortable watch . Brooke Shields mother should be ashamed of herself. How on earth did she allow her 12 year old daughter to do this movie. Shocking
