Storyline

A washed up Vegas lounge singer, Jack Satin (Hamilton von Watts), has no money, no job, and delusional aspirations of fame. When Jack is forced to leave Vegas, he packs up his old Cadillac and hits the road for Atlantic City. But his car dies in the desert and Jack is left stranded in the small town of Lost Springs. There, Jack meets jazz legend turned mechanic, Doc Bishop (Robert Guillaume), who helps him with his car trouble. Although Jack is far from the stage, he begins to find himself feeling at home in the small town. When he meets dreamy eyed bartender, Lauren Wells (Melissa Joan Hart), Jack starts to see there is more to life than chasing fame and fortune. Doc encourages Jack to explore his true love of music, while Lauren provides the audience he has always wanted. But as Jack realizes this town has more to offer him than the bright lights of the big city, his Vegas past catches up with him -- what unfolds is comedy at the crossroads of life.

Great characters make a great movie
1 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is definitely one of the better indie flicks I've seen in awhile. It's a nice blend of comedy and more emotional heart than you'd guess from the trailer. The plot synopsis above sums the story up well.

Hamilton von Watts turns in a great performance as the title character. Definitely my favorite part. It would have been easy to just ham the role up and overplay the lounge singer bit, but von Watts really hooked me. I found him to be more tragic and emotionally grounded than I would have expected. Was pleasantly surprised. Supporting cast is also fantastic. I love seeing Melissa Joan Hart and Robert Guillaume (Sports Night 4 life) in some roles. Overall it's a great watch.

Highly recommended if you like intimate, funny and surprisingly heartfelt indie films. Rent this one.
