Beautiful star, Fun story
18 January 2005 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Betty (Cheryl Pollack) is a well-known actress in need of a respite. She leaves the set of her newest film and ends up hiding out in a retirement community near Palm Springs. Protected from the outside world, she declares she wants to leave her profession. When the pool cleaner comes around, Betty joins him at his work on a trial basis. The same thing happens when a professional golfer and a massage therapist cross paths with the beautiful young star. But does Betty really want to leave the dramatic world?

This independent film delivers charm and humor in abundance. Pollack is perfect as the actress who knows nothing about real life work but tries her best to fit in. The supporting players, including Ron Perlman, are just wonderful. For those who love to find offbeat films that are absolutely worthwhile, trek everywhere to track this one down.
