Dirty, Pretty Things

Okwe, an illegal immigrant working as a night porter at a posh London hotel, stumbles across evidence of a bizarre murder. He and Senay, a Turkish chambermaid -- and fellow undocumented worker -- venture into the city's seedy underworld to find out what happened. Stephen Frears directs this gritty urban thriller. The theme is illegal organ transplantation. The film is dark and compelling. It addresses medical tourism and transplantation.

In a bizarre twist, there was a similar case in India this past year. See "TheStar."

This film is a "must-see."
