Ryan is the house DJ at a nightspot in Los Angeles that is enjoying a brief moment as the hippest joint in town. Ryan carries a torch for Cassie, a waitress who is hoping to launch a career as an actress. However, Cassie isn't as strongly attracted to Ryan, and she has no shortage of other potential suitors. As Ryan and Cassie try to sort out their feelings during one busy night, a number of other folks looking either for new love or a new hook-up make their way across the dance floor, including Tony, who has been propping up his failing film industry career with some illegal business; crystal meth enthusiast Delaney; Mick, who works his British charm for all it's worth; and Aubrey and Apple, who are friends with Cassie and are also struggling to get a break in showbiz.

I bumped into this on one of the movie channels the other day. I wasn't expecting much, but I ended up being surprised at how much I like it. I don't know why the critics buried this movie. The story line is strong and it was well acted (especially Laren German). The directing and editing was top notch. The story is told in bits and pieces from the perspectives of all the characters involved. This format usually makes me dizzy, but it was done so well, the movie spun along without a glitch or a boring moment. The movie is well worth your time if you like to watch young beautiful actors in a contemporary setting shine at their craft.
