Vicky, an ambitious young bomshell living in Hollywood, gets hired to be the "Toy" of her favorite rock star, Stu, who is in desperate need of inspiration. Starry-eyed and reckless, she enters a world of fantasy fueled by addiction and an abusive thirst for fame. Prey to the hidden agendas of those around him, Stu's fantasy world meets harsh reality in a head on collision that forces him to connect with Vicky. The record company needs a hit but Stu can't find the magic. Fate brought them together but will the music break them apart? Written by
I saw this movie at the Dances with films festival in Los Angeles and I noticed how the audience was divided in half. Some people HATED it others LOVED it. There is no middle ground for this movie. It's a real mind manipulator. I though it was a thriller but this movie is really a very DARK comedy. I laughed a lot but I was also afraid and repulsed at times. I think lots of young girls should see this movie (specially in L.A.) . It's a horrific moral tale. Perhaps too dark for some people but I am a musician and a young woman so I loved it. It is like being trapped inside a music video nightmare. I've never seen anything like it. It's weird but great. If you have a dark sense of humor. The acting is OK(not great) but the pictures blew me away. It's been a long time since a movie affected me like this. It brings up strong emotions that most of us try to avoid. I guess it's not for everybody but if you have a dark sense of humor and don't mind an emotional assault you'll love it.
