This ensemble comedy love story chronicles the adventures and misadventures of a group of aspiring actors who wait tables at a popular New York City eatery called "Peter's Backyard." Pitted against the New York culture jungle, the crew serves up a prix fixe of artistic trauma, comedic insanity, and thespian lust while struggling to keep their lives from coming unglued in the urban warfare of the survival of the artist. Written by
Manhattan's restaurants are the mecca for a lot of aspiring actors, a route most young thespians follow before they are discovered, because these eateries provide them with an income to help them pursue their goals. The city could be cruel to those that are starting in a highly competitive environment of the performing arts. The disappointments of the actors are at the center of Ken Liotti's account about the lives of some of these people as they balance dreams with reality.
Mr. Liotti gathered a nice cast of basically unknowns that make this film a bittersweet experience as one follows the different friends he presents to us. While the movie gives us an account of these people's lives, it keeps the viewer interested in this sunny indie film.
Will Arnett, Debbon Ayer, Dwight Ewell, Eddie Malavarca, among the young cast, are actors that, hopefully, will make it big in their own mark in films.
The film will delight viewers of indie films thanks to the inspired direction by Mr. Liotti and his sunny performers.
