Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this contemporary comedy/drama, Anne (Laura Harrington) is a struggling photographer who decides to break up with her boyfriend Joey (Joe Mastroianni) to pursue other romantic opportunities. However, Anne's new-found freedom doesn't work out very well for her, and a new photographic project turns sour when a pimp she was secretly photographing discovers what she's doing and retaliates by trashing her apartment. The City Girl marked the feature debut of director Martha Coolidge, though the film was not released until after her second feature, Valley Girl, became a surprise hit.
