Director Ina Weisse’s drama film begins realistically enough: middle-aged, middle-class music teacher Anna (Nina Hoss) takes a student Alexander (Ilja Monti) under her wing and gives him violin lessons in preparation for an audition.

Book Review: Money for Something by Mia Walsch

MONEY FOR SOMETHING – cover
Money for Something: Sex Work. Drugs. Need. Life. By Mia Walsch (Echo Publishing $29.99) Reviewed by Aponi Kailash Content warnings: suicide attempt, self-harm, drug-use (injection and otherwise).
