as much as I did, you may be interested in a 2000 indie movie called GIRLFIGHT. You can watch it free online. The lead, Michelle Rodriguez, is outstanding. No SFnal elements, but there's plenty of chewy boxing scenes (but not brutality for its own sake), class, race & ethnicity issues, and a love-hate relationship with greater NY city.

Also if you enjoyed Santa Olivia, you may be interested to hear a sequel has just been published!

Thanks for the film rec, I have been meaning to check this one out. Unf Michelle Rodriguez.

I don't think I'm "objectifying" her, but YMMV.

I have a suspicion that MR is queer, but that is not confirmed.

I am perhaps a little over sensitive on this point. :)
