A Prayer Before Dawn (2018) Rated R for strong violence including a brutal rape sequence, drug use and language throughout, some sexual content and nudity.
The woman who plays Fame is a non-actor. Much of A Prayer Before Dawn was shot on location in Thailand, with a cast comprising real ex-gang members and criminals.
As there are no subtitles , and as practically nobody in the film except Billy can speak English, there is little dialogue (or, at least, little dialogue that is of benefit to an Anglophonic audience).
