Kent, a realist who does not dream, is skeptical of those who do. At the end of a long relationship, and desperate for new friends, he seeks the advice of Ori, his mentor. Ori blames Kent's unhappiness on Kent's denial of his true nature. He tries to guide Kent by introducing him to three people who are friends and lucid dreamers. The dreamers, Ron, Charlene, and Jean, literally appear in each other's dreams, and share the same experiences in them. While Kent is entertained by their stories, he interprets the dreams as thinly disguised confessions and requests for help. Kent is in a position to help each of them, and does so willingly: He gives Ron, a struggling futures broker, 5 million dollars to trade; Charlene desires a political appointment. Kent throws a party for the Mayor, so they can meet; Jean needs love and support. They fall in love and he offers to marry her. One by one, the dreamers turn on Kent: When Kent's account vanishes, Ron believes he is being framed for money ... Written by
Liked the location in Chicago and Michigan, cool to see places you are familiar with in the film. Debuted in a vintage restored theatre in Michigan in area with a vibrant arts scene, which was also cool. The score has won awards. Writer/filmmaker Bruce Wood returns to his roots with this film after pursuing painting for a number of years. Have a glass of wine, relax, and dream along with The Door. But pay attention, plot twists. Has an artistic visual feel to it. Liked the characters, found them interesting. It will appeal to indie filmgoers, people who lived thru the 60's or are into 60's sort of dreaminess/psychedelia even tho it is current day, and gay and straight romantics.
