Storyline

A bittersweet satire about Hollywood's bottomless capacity for corruption, Dreamers follows the travails of two friends who leave their small Tennessee town for Tinseltown. Opening with a view of Hollywood through the lens of an Asian tourist's video camera accompanied by the movie-loving tourist's ramblings, the film cuts to Jefferson City, Tennessee, where two boys indulge in fantasies of fleeing to L.A. Several years later, one of those boys, Dave, is heading west to join his childhood friend Ethan in Hollywood. Ethan has spent the past five years trying unsuccessfully to finish his untitled film, scraping together a living as an Amway salesman and construction worker. Following his arrival, Dave finds brief work on a porn set before being fired, and, as part of an attempt to help Ethan find funding for his movie, loses his virginity to a lusty Beverly Hills housewife.

Angelle in Dreamers!!!
12 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really liked this movie, I thought that it gave a grim look into the reality of making it in Hollywood. I especially liked the character of Angelle, I thought the actress which is Lauralinda Bedell, did a really good job with her performance. Her style, makes me want to see more of her in the movies. Lauralinda if you ever check out this site, please let your fans know when we'll see you next. One of your many loyal fans!!!!!!!!!!!!We love you!!!!!!!!I have seen this one performance but I look forward on seeing you on the big screen. To sum it all up I thought that this was a good way of making people understand the realness, that it takes.
