Please help me remember a movie title

This post is a bit different from the norm...

A friend and myself were having a discussion a few weeks ago and a movie that we watched back in the 80s came up, but neither of us can remember the name of that movie. After weeks of googling, I can't find any mention of this movie anywhere. Surely somebody here is up to the challenge!

We saw the movie I believe in the later 80s, perhaps early 90s, but i really think it was in the 80s. It was a movie about a young prostitute with a mentally handicapped brother that she supported. Her brother always wore earmuffs. She was a very positive young woman in the beginning of the movie, but by the end of the movie, everybody she cares about had been killed and she became very dark. It was similar in era, plot, etc... to the Angel series of movies.

Please help fill this void. I HATE when I get something like this in my head and can't resolve it

This sounds familiar, I was gonna say it was Angel but it's already been said that's not it. Savage Streets maybe?

I was thinking of Savage Streets, as well. But Linda Blair had a sister in that and not a brother. I wonder if There's Something About Mary is blending into the recollection?

Thanks for the suggestions but it's neither of those. Unfortunately I've got nothing else to go on.
