Description: Based in part on an actual incident, the independent drama 100 Proof records one especially bad day in the lives of Rae (Pamela Stewart) and Carla (Tara Bellando), two tough but misused women living in a small Kentucky town. Rae and Carla get by through a combination of low-paying jobs, petty theft, and occasional prostitution, and often resort to drugs and alcohol to blot out the misery of their lives. Over the course of 24 hours, the two women con Arco (Jack Stubblefield Johnson) and Sissy (Minnie Bates Yancey), an elderly couple they've been hired to look after, out of their pension check; have a run-in with Rae's father (Jim Varney), a sleazy and abusive man who tries to pimp his daughter to his friends; score cocaine from a ne'er-do-well at the local store; and sink into a depression fueled by drugs that eventually explodes into shocking violence. 100 Proof was the debut feature for writer/director Jeremy Horton, and received strong reviews for its grim but true-to-life atmosphere and the performances of Pamela Stewart and Tara Bellando.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
